Columbus Crew forward Kevin Molino's awful luck with knee injuries has continued, with the club announcing Tuesday the Trinidad and Tobago international will be out 6-8 weeks after undergoing a meniscectomy.
The 32-year-old, who has suffered three torn ACLs, made substitute appearances in the Crew's first three matches of the 2023 season before getting the procedure last week.
Molino missed the Crew's 2-1 Matchday 4 loss at the New York Red Bulls, as did fellow attackers Cucho Hernández (hamstring) and Christian Ramírez, a winter signing who has yet to make his debut due to a foot injury.
Molino joined Columbus as a free agent in 2021, suffering his most recent ACL tear that season. The veteran had productive stints with Minnesota United FC (2017-20) and Orlando City SC (2015-16), tallying 34 goals and 29 assists in 129 regular-season games over the course of his MLS career.
