EAST HARTFORD, Conn. – Toronto FC backup goalkeeper Alex Bono will be out two to three weeks after dislocating a finger.

The MLS club said Bono underwent surgery after injuring the little finger on his right hand in training Saturday. That leaves the side with starter Quentin Westberg and No. 3 keeper Kevin Silva.

Bono has posted shutouts in all three league appearances this season.

The 26-year-old from Syracuse, N.Y., was taken sixth overall by Toronto in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft. He became the starter in 2017 but lost the No. 1 position to Westberg last season.

He started in Toronto’s 1-0 win over the New England Revolution on Wednesday, recording a club-record 29th clean sheet and his 52nd career win. It was his 100th career start in all competitions.

Toronto played at FC Cincinnati on Sunday.
