Good news came out of practice on Tuesday as Teal Bunbury was present and Jermaine Jones is set to arrive soon, according to New England Revolution staff writer and online host Jeff Lemieux.
Alston (hamstring) stayed inside for treatment today, but Bunbury (shoulder) was back outside for warmups. Making progress. #NERevs— Jeff Lemieux (@jeff_lemieux) March 24, 2015
Jones set to arrive in NE later this week. Heaps said #NERevs will evaluate his health and hope he's good to go "in the next week or so."— Jeff Lemieux (@jeff_lemieux) March 24, 2015
The progress made by both midfielders can only be viewed as positive as the Revs currently have one point through three games with a goal differential of -5. When healthy, Bunbury and Jones should provide assistance on both sides of the ball.
The only bad news to come out of Tuesday's practice was that Kevin Alston remains sidelined. Alston had won the right back position that was vacated by Andrew Farrell. With Alston still rehabbing a hamstring injury, head coach Jay Heaps will likely turn to Darrius Barnes or Jeremy Hall.
