CHANDLER TO HAVE SURGERY
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
KENYA BROWN - Monday, August 31, 2015
U.S. right back Timothy Chandler will be on the shelf for several weeks after tearing his meniscus and will undergo surgery, Eintracht Frankfurt reported on Sunday.

The 25-year-old suffered the injury on Saturday in the team's 4-1 win over VfB Stuttgart. He was in the starting lineup for Frankfurt, but was pulled at halftime as it was first reported that he had twisted his right knee. There is no timetable for Chandler's recovery yet, but it looks like he will be out of action for weeks.

The injury certainly leaves Chandler out of U.S. national team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann's plans as the team prepares for its two friendlies against Peru and Brazil on Sept. 4 and 8 respectively as well as the big playoff game against Mexico on Oct. 10 to see who represents CONCACAF at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup.

Chandler's injury adds to the woes for the national team as Fabian Johnson went down injured two weeks ago in training with Borussia Monchengladbach. Left back DaMarcus Beasley also went down with a calf injury during the Houston Dynamo's game against the Vancouver Whitecaps.

With the spat of injuries, it will be interesting to see who Klinsmann uses on the wings in the upcoming games.
