Atlanta United left back Greg Garza will miss four to six months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder, the team announced Tuesday.
Garza first injured his shoulder during the 2017 MLS All-Star Game in August. He aggravated the injury during Atlanta’s 3-1 loss to the New York Red Bulls on May 20, a contest in which he received a red card in the 71st minute for a tackle on Red Bulls midfielder Daniel Royer.
At the earliest, Garza could return to the club in the final month of the regular season.
This season, Garza, 26, has one goal and three assists in 10 games, all starts. He joined United on loan last season, starting 25 of 26 games and registering two goals and five assists.
