For the second year in a row, Florian Valot suffered an ACL tear in one of his knees.

The Red Bulls midfielder incurred the injury in his right knee during the 4-1 home win over the San Jose Earthquakes last Saturday.

Valot will undergo surgery in the coming weeks with team doctors at the Hospital for Special Surgery. A timetable for return will be established after surgery.

The 26-year-old Valot missed the second half of last season with an ACL tear in the left knee.
