BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) — Aston Villa defender Diego Carlos is set for a long spell out after rupturing his Achilles tendon. The Premier League team says the Brazilian center back will have surgery and then begin a rehab program. Villa did not say how long it expects Carlos to be sidelined. The 29-year-old Carlos joined Villa from Sevilla during the offseason and started the team’s first two games in the Premier League. Villa lost 2-0 to Bournemouth and beat Everton 2-1 on Saturday. He sustained the injury in second-half stoppage time against Everton.
