Major League Soccer Vancouver Whitecaps striker Atiba Harris is out indefinitely after successful knee surgery team management has confirmed.
The Kittitian international and former SKNFA League St.Peters FC striker was injured during a practice in Mid April tearing cartilage in his right knee.
Harris underwent surgery to repair his right meniscus. The operation was performed by orthopedic surgeon Dr. Bob McCormack
Harris was claimed from FC Dallas in the second round of the 2010 MLS expansion draft. He had two goals and three assists in five games before his injury.
HIs prolonged absence increases the chances that understudy strikers Omar Salgado and Long Tan will get increased playing time in the very near future
Vancouver also signed 33-year-old midfielder Peter Vagenas. The American spent the past two seasons with Seattle and has played 10 seasons in the MLS.
