Atlanta United midfielder/defender Chris McCann will miss approximately three weeks with a strained left quadriceps, the team announced Friday.

The injury leaves McCann on the sidelines for Sunday's playoff match against New York City FC.

McCann suffered the injury during last Sunday's regular-season finale against Toronto FC.

The 31-year-old has one goal in 22 games (21 starts) this season in his second campaign with Atlanta.

Defender Greg Garza replaced McCann against Toronto in his first action in more than five months due to shoulder surgery.
