Sporting KC's Arnaud to have hernia operation

Sporting Kansas City captain Davy Arnaud will undergo sports hernia surgery next week and will miss up to six weeks.

The team said Wednesday that the 31-year-old midfielder is scheduled to have the procedure July 6 in Los Angeles. Arnaud says he's a "quick healer."

Arnaud has played in 15 matches in his 10th season in the MLS. Teammate Omar Bravo had sports hernia surgery earlier in the season.
