The Montreal Impact announced on Tuesday that forward Cameron Porter will undergo surgery on his left knee to repair an ACL tear. Porter suffered the injury on Saturday, during the first half of the Impact's away game against the New England Revolution.
Back in Montreal on Sunday, Porter was diagnosed after meeting with Montreal doctors Tuesday afternoon. He is scheduled for surgery next week and is expected to be out approximately nine to 12 months.
Porter, 21, was a third-round pick (45th overall) out of Princeton in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft. He saw action for the Impact almost immediately, coming off the bench in both their Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League games against Pachuca and scoring the dramatic equalizer that sent Montreal through to the semifinals. He had appeared as a substitute in the team's league opener against D.C. United before starting the first leg of the CCL semifinal against Alajuelense and the game at New England.
