Manchester City defender Micah Richards out for weeks after knee operation

Manchester City defender Micah Richards had an operation on his right knee on Wednesday and could miss England's next match.
Richards had surgery on damaged cartilage _ the recurrence of an injury he had in January. Man City said he would be sidelined "for a matter of weeks." England's next game is a friendly against France at Stade de France on March 26.
The 20-year-old Richards was an unused substitute in England's last game _ a 2-1 win over Switzerland in a friendly on Feb. 6 that was the first game in charge for England manager Fabio Capello.
Man City's doctor Mark Whitaker said Richards would begin a rehabilitation program on Thursday.
"The medical team will monitor his progress over the coming days and weeks," Whitaker said.
