    KANSAS CITY, Kansas -- Sporting Kansas City announced Sunday that defender Chance Myers will undergo season-ending surgery on Wednesday to repair a ruptured left Achilles tendon.  He suffered the injury during Sporting's 2-2 draw against Toronto FC on May 23.

    “This is very disappointing,” Myers said, who has played in seven Major League Soccer appearances this year, all starts.  “I will work hard to not only come back from this injury, but to come back stronger.  I wish my teammates the best of luck during the remainder of the season and will support the team any way I can.”

    Kansas City drafted Myers with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2008 MLS SuperDraft.  Over the past seven seasons, the 26-year-old has appeared in 123 regular season games and his CONCACAF Champions League debut against Honduras’ Olimpia in a 0-0 draw on October 23, 2013.

    “First and foremost, I am very upset for Chance,” Sporting KC head coach Peter Vermes said.  “He has worked very hard and always takes care of himself to make sure he is prepared to play.  Getting a serious injury is never an easy thing to cope with, but I have full faith that he will work hard to come back and continue to be an important member of our club.”

    As the reigning MLS champion, Sporting Kansas City returns to the CCL this year and will discover its opposition at Wednesday’s draw in Doral, Florida.
