It was announced by the Whitecaps that striker Atiba Harris recently underwent a follow up surgery to his right knee. The original surgery was performed, to the meniscus of his right knee, back in April and has sidelined the MLS veteran for most of the year. This type of surgery allows the recipient to start putting weight on it within a week or two but a return to soccer may not be possible this year. The Caps are hopeful that Harris may return to some action in the month of October when the team will play five league and two reserve matches. However, there will be no need to rush the striker back if he is deemed not ready by the medical staff. The expansion draft pick up has played in five matches this season and contributed with two goals and three assists.
