FC Dallas midfielder Paxton Pomykal is done for the season due to cartilage damage in his left knee.

The team announced Tuesday that Pomykal, 24, will undergo surgery next month in Los Angeles.

"Paxton is such an important part of our club," sporting director Andre Zanotta said. "While losing him for the 2024 season is a setback, he's a mature, dedicated player whose focus will be on supporting the team and remaining a part of everything we do this year."

The homegrown player made only one appearance this season, playing six minutes in a 2-1 loss to CF Montreal on March 2.

Pomykal has recorded four goals and 15 assists in 127 career MLS matches (91 starts) with FC Dallas since 2017.
