FC Dallas is busy in their preseason campaign and today they took a bit of a hit as midfielder Bryan Acosta will be sidelined indefinitely after an emergency laparoscopic appendectomy Sunday afternoon.

The surgery was performed by Dr. Jeremy Carrasco at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Plano. No timetable has been established regarding Acosta’s return. Depending on the severity of the surgery, Acosta should only be sidelined for a few weeks.

His wife, Mavis Hernandez, tweeted on Sunday Acosta was about to get an appendectomy and later showed Acosta in recovery.

The surgery explains his absence from Sunday’s friendly over USL-C side Austin Bold.

Again, no timetable has been given for his return but thankfully FC Dallas should be fairly capable of replacing him in the lineup.
