Josh Yaro to miss 2-3 weeks

One of the Philadelphia Union's breakout young stars will be out for less than a month with a torn labrum.

The Philadelphia Union's Josh Yaro will miss two to three weeks with a torn labrum, the club revealed via press release this afternoon. The injury does not require surgery, and with the Copa América giving the Union off until the 18th, it's not expected that Yaro will miss many MLS matches, although he'll certainly miss the club's entrance into the U.S. Open Cup tournament on Wednesday, June 15.

The second overall pick in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft, Yaro had taken over the starting center back role from Ken Tribbett, playing next to Richie Marquez on one of the league's best defenses until injuring his shoulder during a hard challenge against Orlando City back on May 25. He's started seven games for the Union, amassing 584 minutes. He also played three games with Bethlehem Steel FC at the beginning of the season, playing against FC Montreal, FC Cincinnati, and New York Red Bulls II.
