HARRISON, N.J. (AP) - New York Red Bulls defender Connor Lade will miss the rest of the MLS season with a knee injury.

The Red Bulls announced Tuesday that Lade tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in Sunday’s 2-2 tie with the Galaxy in Los Angeles. He’s expected to have surgery later this month.

Lade, from Morristown, New Jersey, has made 20 appearances and 16 starts for New York this season. He scored his first MLS goal on July 13, the game-winner against Orlando City SC.

The defender has played in 73 regular-season games since signing in 2011.
