Sporting KC defender Hedrick fractures fibula

Sporting Kansas City defender Cyprian Hedrick fractured the fibula in his left leg Friday and will need surgery that will sideline him up to four months.

The 22-year-old Hedrick was picked in the second round of the 2012 SuperDraft, and had appeared in MLS Reserve League and exhibition matches this season. He was an NSCAA All-American first-team selection at Coastal Carolina.
