FC Dallas defender Edson Edward undergoes knee surgery

FC Dallas defender Edson Edward underwent surgery on his right knee yesterday. Dr. Tarek Souryal from Texas Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Group successfully reconstructed Edward’s ACL and repaired his lateral collateral ligament.

Edward injured the knee during an indoor training session at Fieldhouse USA on Feb. 3. The team had moved indoors after snow and ice blanketed the DFW Metroplex. Recovery is expected to take six to nine months.
