Toronto FC captain and United States international Michael Bradley will miss several weeks due to a knee injury sustained during Tuesday's 1-0 loss to the visiting Montreal Impact.

Coach Greg Vanney said Thursday that an MRI shows the 33-year-old midfielder has a Grade 2 sprain of the medial collateral ligament.

"Timeline-wise it's weeks, it's not months," Vanney told reporters Thursday. "We'll see just how he progresses, I guess. He'll be out for a little while."

Bradley was injured during stoppage time on a foul by Impact midfielder Emanuel Maciel, whose red card on the play was downgraded to a yellow after a video review.

Bradley has started seven games this season. He has 12 goals and 29 assists in 200 career MLS games (199 starts) with Toronto (2014-20) and the MetroStars (2004-05).
