Harrington Out For The Year

Michael Harrington will miss the rest of the year after foot surgery

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

The Colorado Rapids announced today that defender Michael Harrington underwent successful surgery for plantar fasciitis and will miss the rest of the 2015 season.

If you remember, Harrington was a no brainer starter for the Rapids in the first half of the season making 14 appearances but suddenly fell out of favor from the side.

I know that he was with his wife for the birth of his first child which caused him to miss time from the squad, but from that point there was nothing.  No word from the team.  Nothing at all.

And I think that is where the concern comes from.  If Harrington was battling a knock (which he obviously was) why not just say something?  Why keep it a secret?  Supporters seemed to like Harrington and what he brought to the team, but why not just be honest about it?

So what do you think Rapids fans?  Are you going to miss Harrington?  Let us know in the comment section below!
