Portland Timbers defender Nat Borchers is out for the rest of the season after rupturing his left Achilles tendon in Saturday's match against the LA Galaxy.

Borchers sustained the injury late in the first half of the match at Providence Park.

The team announced Monday that Borchers would undergo surgery, with the procedure to be scheduled following further evaluation.

Borchers will miss the remainder of the 2016 season and will conduct rehabilitation at the Providence Sports Care Center at Providence Park with Timbers medical personnel.

The Timbers fell to the Galaxy 2-1 on Saturday. Portland next takes on Sporting KC on Sunday.
