Totori to be sent home due to knee injuries

The U-S football team, Portland Timbers announced today that forward Benjamin Totori will miss the remainder of the 2008 season due to season-ending knee injuries suffered last week.

Totori ruptured his right medial collateral ligament, M-C-L during training on July 16 – the same knee he injured earlier in the season.

Totori will return to Solomon Islands on Saturday to begin his rehabilitation.

Totori, 22, appeared in three regular-season matches for the Timbers this season. He joined the Timbers in May following the 2007-08 New Zealand Football Championship season with Waitakere United and played in his first two matches with the club before straining his right M-C-L against the Montreal Impact on May 30.

He missed six league games while recovering from his injury, and last played against the Puerto Rico Islanders on July 10.
