Beckham Out 6 Weeks With Knee Injury [David Stefanini]

David Beckham has suffered a sprained knee, which could leave him out for the rest of the regular season. Here is the Associtaed Press with the story:

David Beckham could miss the rest of the Los Angeles Galaxy's season after being diagnosed with a sprained right knee Thursday.

The English midfielder underwent an MRI exam that confirmed he sprained the medical collateral ligament in his knee, the team said in a statement.

Beckham was injured in a tackle with Pachuca midfielder Fernando Salazar in the first half of Wednesday night's SuperLiga title match. The Galaxy lost 4-3 on penalty kicks.

He was expected to be out about six weeks, and will immediately begin rehabilitation, the team said.

That would place his return at mid-October, at which point the Galaxy would have three regular-season games remaining—against Toronto FC, New York and Chicago.
