David Beckham to miss 6 weeks because of sprained right knee

David Beckham could miss the rest of the Los Angeles Galaxy's season after being diagnosed with a sprained right knee Thursday.
The English midfielder underwent an MRI exam that confirmed he sprained the medial collateral ligament in his knee, the team said in a statement.
Beckham was injured in a tackle with Pachuca midfielder Fernando Salazar in the first half of Wednesday night's North American SuperLiga title match. The Galaxy lost 4-3 on penalty kicks.
He was expected to be out about six weeks, and will immediately begin rehabilitation, the team said.
That would place his return at mid-October, at which point the Galaxy would have three regular-season games remaining _ against Toronto FC, New York and Chicago.
Beckham had already been nursing a left ankle injury that caused him to miss seven games since joining the team July 13.
