You all have been waiting for some offseason news and FC Dallas has delivered some today. Michael Barrios, Jesus Ferreira and Victor Ulloa have all recently undergone successful procedures to repair injuries this offseason.

Barrios and Ulloa will return in time for the start of the 2018 season.

Barrios had surgery to repair his right foot on October 27. The procedure was performed by Dr. John Early at Texas Health Institute for Surgery in Dallas. He is expected to make a full recovery in four weeks.

Ulloa had surgery to repair a sports hernia, yesterday. The procedure was performed by Dr. William Myers at Vincera Institute in Philadelphia. He is expected to recover fully in four-to-six weeks. This is the same injury that sidelined him at the beginning of the 2017 season.

Ferreira is the one player of the group that will be on the shelf longer though. He had surgery to repair his right meniscus on October 31. The procedure was performed by Dr. James Walter at Texas Health Institute for Surgery in Dallas. According to the club, he is expected to return to training in one-to-four months, depending on his progress.
