The Toronto FC soccer club took a hit to their lineup today. The team announced that Jermain Defoe will miss nearly a month while he recovers from his injury.
Defoe has been diagnosed with a groin strain that will keep him out the next 2-3 weeks.
With this injury, it will cause Defoe to miss the MLS All-Star game in Portland, Oregon on Wednesday. Now, Michael Bradley will be the lone Toronto FC player at the game.
DeFoe, who sat out Saturday’s game, has reportedly been dealing with this injury for the past few weeks. The team originally thought it was a sports hernia and underwent medical tests on Sunday to determine it was just a strain.
Defoe, who came to the Toronto FC this past January, started 14 of the 15 games this season. He has played in 1,242 minutes with 11 goals and two assists.
