Milan's Yepes to undergo ankle surgery

AC Milan defender Mario Yepes is expected to miss the next 10 weeks after undergoing ankle surgery.

The Colombian sustained ligament damage in his ankle during Milan's 2-2 draw with Bologna on Sunday and had to be replaced by Daniele Bonera.

Yepes was already filling in for the injured Alessandro Nesta, leaving the Rossoneri short of options along the back line.

The 35-year-old Yepes has appeared in six Serie A matches for Milan this season, scoring one goal.
