CARSON, Calif. (AP) LA Galaxy forward Javier “Chicharito” Hernández has torn a ligament in his right knee.

The Galaxy confirmed the injury Friday. The Mexican star will have surgery soon, but the injury could end his season.

Hernández tore his ACL on a noncontact play Wednesday night in the first half of the Galaxy's loss to Real Salt Lake in the U.S. Open Cup quarterfinals.
