KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Sporting Kansas City defender Aurelien Collin will miss up to two weeks after suffering two facial fractures during the MLS All-Star Game.

Collin was hurt during a collision with Chelsea's Michael Essien near midfield during the game Wednesday night between a team of MLS All-Stars and the Premier League club in Chester, Pa.

Collin played 36 minutes before getting hurt in the MLS team's 3-2 victory.

The 26-year-old Frenchman has started all 21 regular-season matches this season, helping Sporting KC to post nine shutouts with a league-leading 0.90 goals-against average. Collin has also scored three goals with an assist.
