SKC's Eric Kronberg breaks hand

Eric Kronberg will miss eight weeks for Sporting Kansas City.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Sporting Kansas City goalkeeper Eric Kronberg fractured a bone in his left hand during practice Wednesday and will miss about eight weeks for the defending MLS Cup champions.

The club recalled goalkeeper Jon Kempin from his loan to USL PRO affiliate OKC Energy FC to provide depth during Kronberg's absence. Andy Gruenebaum is expected to become the team's primary goalkeeper after starting both of Sporting KC's matches in the U.S. Open Cup.

Kronberg had started 17 matches for Sporting KC this season, and was leading Major League Soccer with seven shutouts and a 0.88 goals-against average. The reigning MLS player of the month also ranked third at his position in All-Star fan voting.

Sporting KC plays at Montreal on Saturday.
