MONTREAL -- Montreal Impact defender Jeb Brovsky has undergone plastic surgery to repair six fractures to his nose from a collision in Wednesday night's game against the Vancouver Whitecaps.

A bloody Brovsky finished the Amway Canadian Championship game despite the collision with Vancouver defender Jordan Harvey. The Impact says Brovsky escaped damage to his facial bones but will be checked the next few days for a possible concussion.

Brovsky, who has a small plastic brace on his nose, will be out of training for at least one week.

"The surgery went well and now he just needs the time to heal," Impact sporting director Nick De Santis said in a statement Thursday. "He puts everything onto the field every moment. When you play like Jeb does, these things can happen."

Brovsky has played every minute of every game this season for the Impact.

Wednesday's game finished at 0-0. The second leg is scheduled for May 29 at B.C. Place Stadium.
