Colorado's Calderon sidelined 4-5 months with knee injury

Colorado defender Diego Calderon underwent surgery on his injured knee, and will miss four to five months while he recovers.

The 26-year-old joined in the offseason from Liga de Quito, and had started every match for the Rapids so far this season. He injured himself colliding with a goalpost after attempting to clear a ball off the line in Colorado's 1-0 loss to the LA Galaxy on Saturday, March 23.

Calderon previously made five appearances for the Ecuador national team.
