United forward Patrick Mullins has undergone successful meniscectomy surgery to his left knee and is scheduled to return to play in approximately six weeks. The 25-year-old suffered a knee injury in Vancouver.
Mullins scored eight goals for the Black-and-Red after his acquisition from New York City FC in July of last year. In 44 career starts, he has scored 18 goals and added eight assists.
EVERYTHING today went well... Injuries are never "part of the plan" and definitely not a part of mine. But in all honesty, I am grateful in this moment right now that I have an opportunity in front of me to come back stronger. I look forward to doing just that and being out there with my teammates again. I BELIEVE in this team so much. There is a lot of goodness within this group. Big times are ahead! Thanks to everyone for all of the support and messages
Other forwards on United's roster include Lamar Neagle, who led the team in scoring last season, Sébastien Le Toux, the only active player with at least 55 goals and assists, and Costa Rican national team member José Ortiz.
