RENTON, WASH. - The Seattle Sounders FC announced today that forward Nate Jaqua and goalkeeper Terry Boss have undergone surgery during the past few days.
Jaqua underwent a hip arthroscopy procedure in Vail, Colo., on Friday. He is expected to re-join training with the team in 12-16 weeks.
An eight-year MLS veteran, Jaqua is an original member of Sounders FC. After missing the first 14 games this season due to a lower abdominal injury, Jaqua, 29, returned in late June and totaled six goals and six assists in all competitions. He was named the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup player of the tournament after scoring five goals in four matches and also had three assists in 15 league appearances.
Boss, 29, had reconstructive toe surgery in Seattle last Thursday. He made his MLS debut this season and started four Open Cup and CONCACAF Champions League matches. Boss is expected to join the team for 2011 preseason training in late January.
