NYC FC's Lopez sidelined 12-16 weeks
Don't expect Mikey Lopez to be running around the soccer field any time soon.
The New York City FC midfielder will be sidelined the next 12 to 16 weeks, after having surgery "to remove loose bodies in his ankle," according to the Major League Soccer team.
The operation was done at Columbia Presbyterian hospital in Manhattan by Dr. Griesberg.
The club termed the surgery "a success."
Lopez, 23, recorded an assist in six starts over 15 games and 672 minutes last season.
