Knee Surgery To Sideline Chelsea's John Terry for Six Weeks

Chelsea was dealt a double blow today as they lost the Champions League last-16 first-leg 3-1 to Napoli and lost club captain John Terry for up to six weeks. The team confirmed that Terry will be having surgery on his knee after aggravating a previous injury. 

“John has tried hard to be ready for tonight's game, but it was clear after training last night that it was not going to be possible," a statement on Chelsea's website said. "He will undergo an exploratory arthroscopy in the next day or so, after which the club's medical team will be better placed to advise on a prognosis.”

Terry hasn't played since Jan. 28 and will miss England's friendly against the Netherlands next week and Chelsea's second round in the Champions League if the team makes it.
