GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. (AP) Minnesota United says midfielder Kevin Molino is not expected to return for the rest of the season after he suffered a torn ACL in his left knee.

The club says Molino will undergo surgery to repair the torn ACL in the coming weeks.

Molino scored twice in the season opener at the San Jose Earthquakes and assisted the first goal at Orlando City.
