FCD injury outlook: injured quartet improving
M ANDREW JACOBSON (hamstring injury in first half of Saturday’s win over Montreal)
Hyndman: It [his condition] is a big improvement from yesterday but there’s still a little bit of swelling in the back of the leg and we’re going to be very cautious this week and see if we can get him back for this game.
M BRYAN LEYVA (ankle sprain picked up in training last week)
Hyndman: No it wasn’t [in last week’s reserve game that he picked up that injury]. It was out here in training and it was just a couple days ago. He’ll be going for the reserve game today [Monday].
D HERNAN PERTUZ (leg injury in first half of Montreal game)
Hyndman: Much better as well, it happened about the last 10 minutes of the half. He just took a pretty hard hit to the middle of the foot. He’s getting treatment. Today was a recovery day, so neither player was really asked to do anything but I think he’ll be a player that we’ll just continue to watch as well.
M RICARDO VILLAR (foot injury in first half of 1-0 win over New England on April 5
Hyndman: Very good improvement, his toe is probably the area that’s got the greatest concern. The reason for that is it’s an area where you really explode from, that part of your foot. Right now we’re just grading it.
