News - injuries
Alonso ruled out of MLS Cup final
Seattle Sounders midfielder Osvaldo Alonso has been ruled out of this weekend's MLS Cup final after failing a fitness test on Thursday. Alonso suffered a strained quad in September that he has been dealing with ever since. He made a substitute appearance versus Vancouver in the Western Conference semifinals but has otherwise been sidelined throughout the playoff push.
Altidore ready for MLS Cup despite ankle injury
Jozy Altidore is still dealing with a nagging ankle injury, and hasn't yet participated in a full training session since last week. But the Toronto forward, who took part in portions of Tuesday's practice with his teammates, left no doubts as to whether he'll play in Saturday's MLS Cup final against the Seattle Sounders.
"It was good. I got to take part in the warm up and see how I was feeling. I felt OK," Altidore said during a Tuesday afternoon conference call. "Obviously, it won't be perfect, but like I said on Wednesday night, it's a big game, a one-off, and with everything we put into this season, I'm going to put every right foot forward I can to make sure I'm in the team and playing that game."
Altidore's appeal denied
The bad news Toronto had hoped to avoid is avoidable no longer: Jozy Altidore will miss the first leg of the Eastern Conference final. Ten days after the striker was red-carded for violent conduct in a tunnel dust-up during the Reds' East semifinal clash with the New York Red Bulls, coach Greg Vanney confirmed that an independent panel rejected the club's appeal of an automatic one-game suspension that came with the card. The striker will be unavailable when Toronto visits Columbus next Tuesday.
Deric suspended after arrest
Houston Dynamo goalkeeper Tyler Deric has been suspended pending an investigation by MLS and the Houston Police Department into his arrest Tuesday on misdemeanour assault charges in a domestic case. Deric, who was the MLS Player of the Month for October, will not play for the Dynamo in a playoff game against the Portland Timbers on Sunday.
Mihailovic faces surgery for ruptured ACL
Midfielder Djordje Mihailovic suffered an ACL rupture in his right knee in the Chicago Fire's 4-0 loss to the New York Red Bulls. The 18-year-old is scheduled to have ACL reconstruction surgery in the coming weeks. The injury is typically followed by a long injury layoff. Mihailovic had one goal and two assists in 17 games this season.
Morris undergoes MRI on hamstring
Seattle Sounders forward Jordan Morris was undergoing an MRI on Monday to reveal the extent of the injury to his right hamstring sustained in a 1-1 draw with Los Angeles. Morris was hurt in the second half of Sunday night's match, pulling up and grabbing at his right leg while he was chasing down a ball in the open field. The injury could knock Morris out of the final round of World Cup qualifiers for the United States in early October against Panama, and Trinidad and Tobago.

Rowe to miss 6 to 8 weeks
New England Revolution midfielder Kelyn Rowe will miss 6-8 weeks with a sprained right knee after sustaining the scary looking injury in the dying moments of Sunday's 2-1 loss to New York City. Rowe won't need surgery despite awkwardly twisting the joint as he tried to win a 50-50 ball deep in stoppage time. Even so, the recovery timeline means New England may be without one of its most important players for the remainder of the regular season as they attempt to make a late playoff push.
Hagglund out 6-8 weeks
Toronto defender Nick Hagglund will be out of action for six to eight weeks with a left medial collateral ligament sprain. Hagglund suffered the injury in the first half of Toronto's 4-1 home win over the Portland Timbers on Saturday. Hagglund had torn the same ligament on May 13, and was making just his second start since returning.
Porter suffers season-ending injury
Sporting Kansas City forward Cameron Porter will be out for the rest of the 2017 season after suffering a broken fibula and ligament damage in his right ankle during training Tuesday. Porter, 24, is scheduled to undergo reconstructive surgery next Tuesday. Porter has made two appearances this season for Sporting KC. He has played eight matches in all competitions since joining the club in July 2016, having spent his first two professional seasons with the Montreal Impact.
Velazco undergoes ankle surgery
Real Salt Lake has announced that forward Ricardo Velazco has undergone a successful ankle procedure on Thursday and is on the road to recovery. The 24-year-old underwent surgery for a full repair of a right high ankle sprain and is expected to be out for four months. The Real Salt Lake Academy product is in his second MLS season after signing with Real Monarchs in 2015 and earning a promotion to the first team in 2016.
Opara diagnosed with concussion
Sporting Kansas City defender Ike Opara was described as awake and alert at University of Kansas Hospital after being stretchered off the field Tuesday. Opara was diagnosed with the most severe grade of concussion. He remained at the hospital overnight.
Dallas forward Maxi Urruti accidentally kicked Opara in the face while attempting a bicycle kick in extra time of the U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal match, which Sporting KC won 3-0. Opara stayed motionless on the field for several minutes before departing on a stretcher. He gave a thumbs-up signal as he left.
Lennon suffers ankle sprain in training
Just when it seemed like the Real Salt Lake injury plague had subsided, Brooks Lennon went down in Friday's training session. Lennon suffered an ankle sprain and there is not yet a timetable for his return. The 19-year-old midfielder/forward came to RSL on loan from Liverpool this season. He became a starter by Real Salt Lake's third league match.
