MLS Injury News Week 21

MLS Injury News Week 21

The information hasn’t been great this week with most of the MLS media in San Jose, so I’m expecting a few random “oh yeah he was hurt in training” omissions coupled with rotation of players in the All-Star Game. For the ASG, no one played more than 45, and other than a scare to Acosta no injuries were apparent.

  • Igboananike-Traded to DC United
  • Gerrard-Expected to play according to Bruce Arena. Nigel de Jong and Ashley Cole are also expected to return to action.
  • Besler-suspended for missing the All-Star Game, but unclear if he could have played if not suspended.
  • Coelho-out with that hamstring issue.
  • Brad Davis-out.
  • Zusi-out.
  • Ridgewell-suspended for missing the All-Star Game
  • Borchers-out for the season with a leg injury.
  • Urruti-suffered a concussion that kept him out of last weekend, but reportedly participated in set piece training for FCD without issue, so likely to be available.
  • Castillo-He is apparently in Turkey trying to forced FCD’s hand in a transfer with a Turkish club.
  • Yura-Out with the hip flexor, but there’s a chance he’ll back for the DGW.
  • Hamid-“day to day” with the hand injury, so it’s up in the air for Sunday.
  • Matarrita-Listed as questionable, but I’m thinking he’s out b/c he didn’t train this week.
  • Espindola-Transferred to Mexico.
  • Jermaine Jones-Played in the ASG and is probably a go for Saturday, but told a reporter he needs a MRI on his right knee on Monday as he’s dealing with a LCL strain
  • David Villa-Suspended for YC accumulation.
  • RJ Allen-Suspended for YC accumulation
  • Fredric Bravo-Suspended for YC accumulation
  • Ethan White-Suspended for Red card
  • Barnetta-Suspended for YC accumulation
  • Brek Shea-50/50 to play this week
  • DeMarcus Beasley-Out this week
  • Tyler Deric-Out this week
  • Mikeil Williams-no update but left last match with apparent injury
  • Raul Rodriguez-out for the Dynamo.
  • Also, Tally Hall retired from MLS this week.

And last but not least, I’ve been doing these as just a list of everyone who’s injured, but I want to organize it in the future. What would be the best way for y’all to read this? Sort the players by team? By importance to fantasy? Or just Alphabetical? Let me know in the comments or on twitter (@mikedattiger or @mlsinjurynews) what you would prefer.
