USA goalkeeper Dan Kennedy, who has made seven appearances (six starts) for the
club this season, posting a 1.22 goals against average,  will undergo surgery
tomorrow for an arm injury suffered in last Saturday’s match against
Toronto FC.

Kennedy suffered a tear of the long head tendon of his left
biceps in the 62nd minute of the match against Toronto FC on Saturday, August
7, and was able to continue playing in the match. Tests this week showed the
extent of the injury, and Kennedy will undergo surgery tomorrow by Team Doctor
Michael Gerhardt MD at the Surgery Center of the Pacific in Santa Monica. An
estimated time loss will be determined after the procedure, but Kennedy is
expected to miss the remainder of the season.

Kennedy, 28, joined Chivas USA prior to the 2008 season and
has made 16 appearances (14 starts) in three seasons, making 45 saves and
posting a 1.11 goals against average. Prior to joining the Red-and-White,
Kennedy had played for Municipal Iquique of Chile and the Puerto Rico
Islanders. Born in Fullerton and raised in Yorba Linda, Kennedy also starred
for four seasons at UC Santa Barbara.

Conference matchup this Saturday, August 14 at 8:00 p.m. PT at The Home Depot
Center. A special ‘Family Pack’ is available for fans, starting as
