Colorado Rapids captain Drew Moor will miss the rest of the season after he tore his right ACL and meniscus, the team announced on Tuesday.

Moor, 30, injured his knee on Sunday during the Rapids' 4-2 loss against D.C. United.

"It's hard to remember exactly what happened," said Moor this week about the incident. "I just remember running full speed one way, and cutting really hard when [Luis] Silva cut in. My right leg was planted pretty hard and when I opened up to reach back for the ball, my right leg didn't move and all the weight just went into my knee. It was almost as if, for a split second, I could feel my knee turn into jelly."

The center back has been with Colorado since a 2009 trade with Dallas.

Colorado is 8-10-6 and in seventh place in the Western Conference. They are three points behind the Vancouver Whitecaps for the fifth and final playoff spot in the West.
