http://http://www.dispatch.com/content/blogs/covering-the-crew/2012/04/duka-update.html Unfortunately, this has become common place for our players. I think the turning point was when our Strength&Condition coach left for the EPL (Everton) in 2009. Since that moment forward all Crew injuries have turned into extended leaves. Either the the training staff does not have a good strategy to avoid injuries or they are poor in rehabilitating. I believe its both. Currently: FW Ben Speas (sports hernia rehab) DF Rich Balchan (sports hernia rehab) FW Tommy Heinemann (L knee surgery) DF Julius James (illness) GK William Hesmer (R hip surgery) MF Dilly Duka (L hamstring strain) DF Carlos Mendes (R hamstring strain) And lets look at the total time missed last year. (numbers are approximate based on minutes) Eddie Gaven - 8 games missed Danny ORourke- 28 missed Emilio Renteria - 16 missed Dilly Duka - 23 missed Robbie Rogers - 7 games Shaun Francis- 29 games Just saying something is wrong.
