COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — Colorado Rapids midfielder Oliver Larraz has undergone successful surgery on his lower right leg to repair an open fracture of his tibia, the club announced today. Larraz will immediately begin his rehabilitation process, which is expected to last twelve weeks.
“It’s never easy to see one of your players suffer a serious injury, but we are pleased to know that Oli’s surgery was successful,” said Pádraig Smith, Colorado Rapids Executive VP & General Manager. “We wish him a speedy recovery and have full confidence he’ll bounce back from this setback stronger than before.”
A Denver native, Larraz signed a Homegrown Player contract with the Rapids ahead of the 2021 season and made his professional debut on May 15. The 20-year-old made four appearances for the club while spending the bulk of the 2021 season on loan with Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC in the USL Championship.
