New England Revolution Injury Update: Chris Tierney Out For Season

New England Revolution Injury Update: Chris Tierney Out For Season With Torn ACL

The New England Revolution received a body-blow on Friday with the news of beloved defender Chris Tierney being released.

Per the Revs, defender Chris Tierney has been placed on the club’s Season Ending Injury (SEI) list with a torn anterior cruciate ligament or commonly referred to as ACL.

The 32-year-old suffered the injury in the 43rd minute against the Atlanta United FC on May 30th in a non-contact situation. Tierney is expected to undergo surgery in the next few weeks and will officially miss the remainder of the 2018 season with the recovery time expected to be nine months.

The 11-year veteran is the longest tenured field player in Revolution history and ranks third in club history with 246 MLS appearances and fourth with 220 games started. The Wellesley, Mass native is third all-time in assists, second in game-winning assists, and fourth in minutes played in Revs history.

Tierney is a core-part of the Revolution locker room and is seen as one of the teams leaders both off and on the field. After the match against Atlanta forward Teal Bunbury said:“It’s the hardest. This game is cruel. It’s tough like that, because he’s a guy that is a veteran player, someone we all look up to, that busts his tail and works so hard every day in training, no matter if
he’s in the lineup or not. I’m gutted for him, but I know his mind is already getting back and his spirits—we’re going to try to keep his spirits up and see what that injury is, but definitely, it’s tough to swallow.”

The New England Revolution will take on the New York Red Bulls on Saturday at Gillette.
