Jose Torres will have a while to rest his ailing foot.
The U.S. national team midfielder, who underwent surgery on his left foot Wednesday, is expected to be out for several months.
His Mexican club Pachuca said the surgery was to repair a broken bone in his fifth metatarsal. The club said he expected him to miss rest of the Apertura season, which ends in December.
Torres has been a regular this season for Pachuca and has been called up three times by new U.S. national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann.
