A tough break is the nicest way to describe this for Hendry Thomas. The veteran midfielder underwent a successful surgery to repair a torn left ACL today. According to the club's press release the operation to repair the ACL in his left knee was done using a patellar tendon graph at the Texas Health Center for Diagnostics and Surgery.

Thomas will be sidelined for the next six to eight months following the surgery. The club didn't state whether or not he would be on the injured reserve for the remainder of the season but it is a good chance that he will go that direction.

The Honduran international midfielder came back from muscle tear that kept him out of several games in May and June to only go down again two weeks ago in the US Open Cup game against the Carolina Railhawks.

Prior to the injury, Thomas had logged 770 minutes in league play for FC Dallas this season. He recorded an assist on Fabian Castillo's 71st minute goal in an eventual 3-1 victory against Chivas USA on March 22.
