Red Bulls defender Gideon Baah has been placed on the season-ending injury list, the team confirmed.
"After evaluating Gideon's progress, we have made the decision that we think is best," said Red Bulls Sporting Director Denis Hamlett. "This lets him focus on rehab with our medical staff. Our primary goal is making sure he has the time and resources to return to 100 percent health."
It was initially expected that Baah's recovery time would be five months.
Baah, who joined the Red Bulls last February from Finnish club HJK, suffered a broken tibia in July, which ended his season.
Before the injury, Baah scored two goals in nine games.
