Gabe Latigue Goes Under The Knife

USA TODAY Sports

We've known it was going to happen for sometime now, but the Revs have just today officially announced that the rookie midfielder underwent surgery on his right knee.

Per a team press release, midfielder Gabe Latigue underwent successful surgery on his right knee yesterday. The procedure involved an ACL reconstruction as well as a meniscus repair. Head team physician, Dr. Scott Martin, performed the operation at Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital in Jamaica Plain, Mass. Latigue is expected to be out 6-9 months.

Latigue, 22, suffered the injury just over a month ago, on July 15th, in a training session with the Rochester Rhinos, where he's been on loan all season. With the Rhinos, Latigue made 16 appearances and recorded two assists. He also made two appearances with the Revolution in U.S. Open Cup action, starting two matches and recording one assist.

The rookie out of Elon University had a very impressive pre-season with the Revs in Arizona, particularly when showing off his free kick talents, and looked very capable in his Open Cup outings with New England. The versatile midfielder filled in as a right-back as well as a right-sided, central attacking midfielder in the tournament and generally looked quite promising. We here at The Bent Musket would like to wish Gabe a speedy recovery. We're looking forward to seeing him back on the pitch this Spring.
