The news can hardly be considered “good” around FC Dallas Stadium, where playmaker David Ferreira will need another surgery to repair a small fracture in his foot. He’ll miss another 6-8 weeks.

That’s the “starting point.” He’ll still needs some time to get past the mental obstacles of overcoming such a devastating injury (the original one, that is).
