The New England Revolution could soon be getting reinforcements as Jermaine Jones and Teal Bunbury are nearing full health.
On Wednesday, General Manager Michael Burns updated fans on the status of both players during the team's annual Season Ticket Holder Welcome Event. The news trickled out through Twitter via Revolution staff writer and online host Jeff Lemieux.

After participating in friendlies with the US National Team, Jones underwent surgery to address a sports hernia. Since then, he has been rehabbing in Los Angeles, CA. Jones has not seen the field for the Revolution in 2015.
Bunbury's injury was sustained in the season opener as he landed awkwardly on his right shoulder while playing against the Seattle Sounders. Bunbury missed last weekend's trip to Yankee Stadium.
