Armstrong, Kindle Done For Year

The Rapids announced today that both Davy Armstrong and Kory Kindle have had surgery for significant injuries that will end their season.  Armstrong blew out his ACL while he was on loan with Phoenix FC and will be out for 6 months.  He'll be ready to come back shortly before the start of the 2014 season, but he's in a contract year so we'll see if he gets a new contract or not.  Kindle is dealing with a sports hernia and will be out for the next 3 months.  He could be back in time for the Conference Finals and/or MLS Cup should the Rapids make it that far, but odds are he's done for the season.

Neither player has had any first team minutes this season so there shouldn't be much change for the team, but it does hurt their chances of sticking with the team in 2014.
