Houston Dynamo have confirmed that midfielder Tony Cascio is set to miss the rest of the MLS season.

The 24-year old, who is on a season-long loan from Colorado Rapids, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and has undergone surgery to reconstruct the area.

Unfortunately, however, Cascio will be unavailable for the remainder of the 2014 campaign in what is a major blow to the Dynamo.

Cascio, who starred in preseason for the Texan club, has made five MLS appearances this term which has included four starts.
