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.
