ATLANTA – Atlanta United today announced it has placed Brad Guzan, Osvaldo Alonso and Dylan Castanheira on the Season-Ending Injury List.

Guzan suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon in his right leg against FC Cincinnati on April 16 and underwent successful surgery to repair the tendon on April 19. Alonso suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his right knee on April 2 and Castanheira suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon in his left leg during training on April 6.

Per MLS rules, if a player suffers a season-ending injury, a club may place that injured player on the Season-Ending Injury List and receive roster relief (i.e., an open roster slot). Once placed on the Season-Ending Injury List, the injured player will not be eligible to play for the club in any remaining competition during that MLS season (including any exhibition games or tournaments, including but not limited to: Leagues Cup, Campeones Cup, CONCACAF Champions League, Canadian Championship and Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup).

Atlanta (3-3-2, 11 points) returns to action Saturday, April 30 when it travels to face Montreal at Stade Saputo (4 p.m., Bally Sports Southeast, Sports Radio 92-9 The Game, La Mejor).
