It looks like we may have to wait a little bit longer to see Justen Glad’s 2017 RSL debut.
Glad was subbed off in the 47th minute of the US U-20’s CONCACAF Championship victory against Honduras on Sunday, and according to a tweet from Salt Lake Tribune beat writer Chris Kamrani, he’s still feeling the effects of that injury.
Jeff Cassar on Justen Glad (knee/leg): "He's in a little bit of pain right now. It's obviously not looking good for this weekend." #RSL— Chris Kamrani (@chriskamrani) March 7, 2017
The quote is from Jeff Cassar at a training session, ahead of RSL’s first road match of the season this Saturday against the Chicago Fire.
Luckily, we saw a very strong showing from David Horst last weekend against Toronto, who will be expected to start at center back again if Glad is indeed kept out of the 18 in Chicago.
Full injury details are still unknown, but we’ll watch for updates and stay on top of it.
