Reis undergoes ankle surgery

Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis underwent successful surgery on his right ankle today, the team said in a news release.

Reis, 35, had cartilage smoothed and one bone spur removed during the procedure. Reis’ expected rehabilitation time is approximately three months.

Reis appeared in 14 games this season after missing the first 12 matches of the year following offseason shoulder and knee surgeries. He made his first MLS appearance of the year on June 27 against the Chicago Fire and started all but two MLS matches since that time. On the season, Reis compiled a 4-7-3 record with a 1.79 goals against average and three shutouts.

The 13-year MLS veteran is the keeper of almost every Revolution goaltending record, including games played in goal (188), games started in goal (187), minutes played in goal (16,842), goals against average (1.29), wins (75), saves (757), shutouts (50) and save percentage (.729).

The Revs close their 2010 home schedule Saturday at 8 p.m. against the Kansas City Wizards.
