FC Dallas defender George John undergoes successful knee surgery

Veteran defender will be placed on season-ending IR

FRISCO, Texas (Thursday, July 31) – FC Dallas defender George John underwent successful surgery to repair his right knee this morning at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital in Southlake.

Dr. Michael Nguyen performed an osteoplasty of the medial femur to repair the knee, which has sidelined John throughout the 2014 season. Recovery from the procedure will keep the veteran center back out for the remainder of the season and he will be placed on the season-ending injury list.
