MLS Injury Report - Week 8

I wasn't around last week, so I'm not sure when any of these new injuries happened, however a few caught my eye.

Tony Meola being out of goal for New York has got to bring some additional shakiness to their backline just as Joe Cannon's return to the list for Colorado does for the Rapids.

Houston has to be a little concerned with Dwayne De Rosario hurting his left ankle. As we saw when they played DC without De Rosario, the Dynamo are just not the same without him (side note, in the initial match report, it said he rolled his right ankle).

Finally, LA without Donovan and Albright is in a hard spot, but with Herculez Gomez being questionable due to a knee strain, the Galaxy are going to have a difficult time improving.

Here is the full list:

Good word, Mike. I just sold DDR and invested in some, hopefully, more productive picks.

When he heals, though, you can bet I will add him to the roster.
