Sporting KC's Chance Myers to have surgery

AP - Sports

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Sporting Kansas City defender Chance Myers will have season-ending surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon that he sustained during a 2-2 draw with Montreal on Friday night.

Myers, who was hurt in the 36th minute, will have the surgery Wednesday.

The former No. 1 pick in the MLS SuperDraft has spent the past his entire career with Sporting KC, re-signing prior to this season. He had two goals and three assists while helping the club win the MLS Cup championship a year ago.

Myers said in a statement Sunday that he will work hard ''not only to come back from this injury but to come back stronger.''
