(Injury) Bug Bites

April 10, 2009

Yesterday, I was concerned about Coach Warzycha possibly rushing players back from injury; that is not a problem today. The Crew may be so short of defenders that they may go to three in the back. Little used subs Jed Zayner and Eric Brunner may get a start as a result.

The defense has given up an average of 2 goals a game this year and now suffer the loss of Marshall, Hejduk, and Iro to suspension or injury. It’s not a good sign when a 34 year old starts to have hamstring issues or a player with a history of concussions suffers a blow to the head.

With injuries to Rogers, Noonan, and Garey, the bench tomorrow will be awfully short. I am glad that players are being held out, but it looks like the Crew has used up all of it’s injury luck during last year’s unusually healthy Cup run.
