Frei to miss 8-10 weeks with broken leg

Published:

TORONTO (AP) -- Toronto FC goalkeeper Stefan Frei is expected to be out for eight to 10 weeks after breaking his left leg in a training accident.

Frei was hurt Friday morning during a wet training game at BMO Field.

Frei, who has been battling Milos Kocic for the starting job, appeared to catch his leg in the grass while going after a ball.

The team says Frei suffered a broken fibula and will undergo an MRI next week to determine whether surgery is needed.

The injury came six days after captain Torsten Frings strained his hamstring during a season-opening loss in Seattle.

Kocic is expected to start Saturday's game against the visiting San Jose Earthquakes.
