FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — New England Revolution midfielder Jermaine Jones has had surgery to repair a sports hernia.

The team said on Tuesday that he is expected to miss 4 to 6 weeks.

Jones had the surgery in California.

Jones played every minute of the four American games at last year's World Cup, scoring one goal. He joined the Revolution in August and had three goals and six assists in 15 games. He helped the team win the Eastern Conference championship and was the runner-up for the MLS Newcomer of the Year.

He played for the United States on Sunday in a 2-0 win over Panama — his 50th cap for the American national team.
