Orlando City SC midfielder Joey DeZart underwent successful surgery to repair his lateral hamstring near the back of his right knee, the team announced Wednesday.

The procedure was performed by Dr. Craig Mintzer at Orlando Health Jewett Orthopedic Institute.

DeZart sustained the injury in Orlando City B’s match at Chicago Fire FC II on July 17. He is expected to be sidelined for approximately three to four months.

DeZart, 24, played in just two minutes of his lone appearance with Orlando City SC this season. He has yet to record a goal or an assist in 29 career matches (11 starts) with Orlando City SC.
