Broken jaw sidelines Conrad 4-6 weeks

August 11, 2006

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City Wizards captain Jimmy Conrad likely will miss four to six weeks to recover from a fractured jaw.

Conrad, the 2005 MLS Defender of the Year and a member of the U.S. World Cup team, was injured when New England Revolution midfielder Clint Dempsey hit Conrad with his elbow Wednesday.

The Wizards' team captain has started 11 matches for Kansas City and scored two goals this season.
