Zardes undergoes foot surgery to be out six to eight weeks

By Adam Serrano

Gyasi Zardes will be out "six to eight weeks" according to head coach and general manager Bruce Arena after "cracking his fifth metatarsal" in his left foot. 

Arena confirmed to the LA Galaxy Insider after training today that the LA Galaxy Homegrown player underwent the surgery on Monday and will be out "like eight weeks" as he recovers from a similar injury that midfielder Kenney Walker suffered on his right foot last month.

Zardes made two preseason starts for the Galaxy against the U.S. U-17's and Los Angeles Blues, but did not appear in their 1-0 defeat to Real Salt Lake last Friday.
