Frei to miss 8-10 weeks with broken fibula Add to ...

Toronto FC goalkeeper Stefan Frei is expected to be out of the lineup for eight to 10 weeks after breaking his left leg in a freak training accident.

The vice-captain suffered the injury Friday morning during a wet training game at BMO Field.

Frei, who has been battling Milos Kocic for the starting position, appeared to catch his leg in the grass while going after a ball.

The team says Frei suffered a broken fibula and will undergo an MRI exam next week to determine whether surgery is required.

The injury came six days after captain Torsten Frings limped out of the season-opening loss in Seattle with a strained hamstring.

Kocic is expected to start today's game against the visiting San Jose Earthquakes.
