FCD injury update: Fabian Castillo, Ugo Ihemelu, Carlos Rodriguez and Ricadro Villar

May, 18, 2012
Here’s the latest on the FC Dallas injury situation after training Friday according to FCD head coach Schellas Hyndman.

F FABIAN CASTILLO (left ankle sprain)

Hyndman’s take: We put him out there today. He’s a player that we could potentially dress tomorrow and have on the bench but we’ll make that final decision shortly.

D UGO IHEMELU (concussion symptoms)

Hyndman’s take: When you talk about player’s health, is it worth one game to get him back injured? Is it worth two games? He’ll let us know when he’s ready.

M CARLOS RODRIGUEZ (left elbow dislocation)-returned to training this week

Hyndman’s take: “I think his elbow’s fine. He’s OK with it but sometimes you pick up other injuries and right now, he’s straining a tender back. But I think he’s good enough to be out on the field sometime. Yeah, I don’t know how to gauge it [where he’s at right now mentally] except that he needs to play.

M RICARDO VILLAR (right foot strain)-returned to some drills this week

Hyndman’s take: We got him into our training, which is we’re only going 30 percent. I think it was good for him. I think the next couple weeks, he should be making strides.
