Well That Was Quick

In a matter of 48hrs, MLS announced that LA Galaxy's Omar Gonzalez would go out on two month loan to the Bundesliga's FC Nurnberg.

Just hours ago, they announced that Omar would be returning home after sustaining a left ACL tear during a collision with USMNT right back Timothy Chandler.

Typically, a recovery time of 4-6 months is expected on ACL repairs, but that assumes that all goes well, and there are no additional issues such as meniscus damage (which I had to go with my lovely right ACL tear).

Via Omar's twitter:
Still in shock that this happened. Your support and well wishes will carry me through a strong (and hopefully quick) recovery!
Well, that sucks. Here's to hoping he recovers well and this doesn't become a chronic injury thing like John O'Brien or what keeps happening to Stuart Holden.
