Terrence Boyd’s strong start in Rapid Vienna’s season has been brought to a halt.
Vienna announced on their website Saturday that Boyd is expected to miss about three weeks with a dislocated shoulder that the Austrian club claims Boyd sustained while with the U.S. Men’s National Team earlier this week. Boyd underwent an MRI upon returning to Vienna and it identified the severity of the injury.
If Boyd is sidelined for three weeks, he will likely be out of contention for the Americans’ pair of World Cup qualifiers vs. Costa Rica and Mexico in early September. The knock also comes at a time when English second division side AFC Bournemouth were reportedly lining up a bid for the 22-year-old striker.
Boyd, who did not feature in the U.S.’s 4-3 win over Bosnia & Herzegovina this past Wednesday, has enjoyed a strong beginning to his second season with Vienna by scoring three goals across all competitions.
What do you make of Boyd being sidelined for up to three weeks? Do you see Vienna struggling without him? Think it would have been a good move for Boyd to join Bournemouth had he not suffered the shoulder injury?
