Brandon Bye has had quite the season for New England but has been forced to put things on pause recently.
Bye told The Bent Musket after training on Monday that he suffered an ankle sprain against Toronto FC in New England’s 2-1 win on August 14th. He has yet to appear in a match since the victory.
After training Bye said he felt alright on the field.
“Little bit of rehab situation going on so it’s going well,” he said. “Feeling better and we’ll see how rehab continues to go.”
This has been quite the season for Bye. He has made a noticeable improvement with his service into the box and also has been a quality defender. The 25-year-old has started 18 games this season and has played over 1,600 minutes racking up two goals and two assists.
Bye said that every season as a player you try to improve.
“That’s what I try to do,” said the right back. “I try to just keep increasing what I can do and help the team win as much as possible and this year we’re doing pretty well.”
With New England at the top of the table, Bye believes that as a club they don’t really have anything to prove to the rest of MLS.
“Our standings are what our standings are and we’ll just continue to move forward and win as many games as possible,” Bye said. “I think that’s what we talked about at the beginning of the year, win every game we step into and I think that continues to be the goal and then get into playoffs and see what happens from there.”
Right now, Bye will be looking to make his return to game action as the Revs take on the Philadelphia Union on Friday night in what will be a major test without the likes of Matt Turner, Tajon Buchanan, and Adam Buksa.
