Timothy Chandler out 8-10 weeks with torn meniscus

Timothy Chandler's World Cup prospects suffered a huge blow Saturday, as FC Nurnberg announced he has a torn meniscus in his left knee, and will be out 8-10 weeks.

The right back suffered the injury in a 2-0 defeat to Bayern Munich. Chandler started the match, but had to be hauled off after just 10 minutes.

The 23-year-old has been in good form for Nurnberg recently, and was a good bet to be called up for the USA's March 5 friendly at Ukraine, after head coach Jurgen Klinsmann said he was keeping an eye on Chandler and would be calling mostly European-based players.

Chandler has not featured for the U.S. since February 2013, when he started in a 2-1 loss at Honduras to open the USA's Hexagonal campaign. The appearance cap-tied him to the U.S. national team.
