It’s the news we were afraid to get. Frank Lampard is officially injured…again.
Lampard was injured during last week’s matchup against FC Dallas, a match that resulted in a draw. The 38 year-old NYCFC midfielder was taken out of the match in the 46th minute after a harsh challenge.
From NYCFC directly, “Frank Lampard is expected to be out for 3-4 weeks after suffering a low grade strain of the left soleus muscle (calf).”
Will this be detrimental to the team’s final playoff run? We’ll find out as NYCFC takes on the Chicago Fire, Houston Dynamo, DC United & the Columbus Crew to close out the season.
