New England Revolution forward Cristian Penilla underwent season-ending surgery on his fractured left foot on Wednesday.
The club said Penilla will require a recovery period of two to three months for the bone to heal.
Penilla suffered the injury during the first half of a victory over New York City FC on Oct. 11. He has missed the past two games.
Penilla, 29, leads the Revolution with four assists this season but hasn't scored a goal in 17 matches (10 starts).
Penilla, a native of Ecuador, scored 18 goals in this first two seasons with New England -- 12 in 2018 and six last season.
New England (7-5-7, 28 points) resides in fifth place in the Eastern Conference heading into Friday's road match against Nashville SC. With four regular-season matches remaining, the Revolution are on the verge of clinching a playoff berth.
