Branko Boskovic Injury A Torn ACL, D.C. United Midfielder Sidelined Indefinitely

Moments before tonight's match against the Houston Dynamo, D.C. United announced via Twitter that Branko Boskovic, the club's Montenegrin designated player, had been diagnosed with a torn ACL. The club did not immediately make any further details available.

Boskovic originally suffered a left knee injury in the 85th minute of Tuesday night's U.S. Open Cup match against the New England Revolution after scoring both United goals in the 3-2 loss. An initial MRI on the injury came back negative, but Boskovic did not accompany the team to Houston this week.  

The 30-year-old Boskovic, who was signed by D.C. United as a Designated Player in June of 2010, has yet to score a goal in 14 league appearances for the Black-and-Red. In his career, he has scored 60 goals in 227 league appearances for Mogren, Red Star Belgrade, Paris Saint-Germain, Troyes, and Rapid Wien. On the international level, Boskovic has scored 2 goals in 30 appearances for both Serbia and Montenegro and Montenegro.
