Marshall Leonard’s Season Over.

Georgia native Marshall Leonard saw his fifth professional season in Major League Soccer come to an end when he suffered a torn Achilles tendon in his left leg on April 24. He was officially played on the league’s season-ending injury list on May 24.

Marshall, who was a high school All-America at Shaw High School, also earned collegiate All-America honors at the University of Virginia before being selected in the fourth round of the 2002 MLS SuperDraft by the New England Revolution.

Last season he was a regular starter for the Revs on the left side of midfield, and scored his first MLS career goal last year against D.C. United.

Leonard was injured on April 24 in a scrimmage at the Gillette Stadium practice fiels against Boston College. Team physician Bertram Zsarins, M.D., performed the surgery. Leonard’s expected recovery and rehabilitation period is expected to be six months.

By placing Leonard on the season-ending injury list, the Revolution is now allowed to sign another player to fill his spot on the 18-player senior roster.
