Moose hernia repaired

There's been some speculation about why Moose hasn't played in our last games. Today, DC United reports that the second-year midfielder underwent successsful surgery to repair hernias on his left and right abdominal walls. His full recovery is expected in 2 to 3 weeks. Justin has made seven appearances and four starts this season, and had begun to establish himself as an excellent substitution when United needed hustle and spark in the midfield. Let's hope his recovery is as quick as predicted - no one else has stepped up in this role yet this season.
