UPDATED: Juan Jesus out for the remainder of the season

Juan Jesus - Claudio Villa

The Brazilian defender will miss the rest of the season.

Juan Jesus has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2013-14 season with knee ligament damage. The injury was sustained in the first half of Inter's draw this past weekend against Bologna. The Brazilian was taken in for evaluation on Sunday, where it was discovered that the medial collateral ligament (MCL) in his right knee was ruptured.

Reports suggest that Jesus could be out for roughly three months, although further evaluation is needed. We will keep you updated as this story progresses.

We wish Juan a speedy recovery!
