It’s a relatively bare injury report for the New England Revolution as only Jermaine Jones (left sports hernia surgery) and Daigo Kobayashi (left hamstring strain) are listed. Both players are questionable for Saturday.
Jones traveled to Colorado last weekend but didn’t make the game day 18. The Designated Player is optimistic about returning to the field soon, telling media on Friday that he hopes to get some minutes against Columbus Crew SC.
Kobayashi missed his first game of 2015 last weekend and is presently listed as questionable. The Japanese midfielder was replaced by Andy Dorman in the match against the Colorado Rapids, though Jones would likely occupy the spot if deemed fit.
Teal Bunbury, who was questionable last week, is absent from the most recent report.
The Crew also have a pair of players who are dealing with ailments. Waylon Francis is suffering from a right ankle sprain while Wil Trapp is experiencing concussion symptoms. Both players are characterized as questionable.
