D.C. United received unfortunate news Friday as rookie midfielder Lance Rozeboom will be out for several months with a torn ACL according to Steven Goff of The Washington Post.

Rozeboom was a nice story for D.C. United, as he worked his way from being a supplemental pick to earning one of the club's final spots. He did not appear in either of the team's games so far, but was included on the 18-man game day roster for their game against the L.A. Galaxy back on March 18.

Rozeboom was injured during a practice session in California earlier this week before heading back to Washington for more tests, which were announced Friday. He will undergo surgery on April 5 and an exact time table for his return is not known yet.
