    More of a definitive return date than we’ve been given before. This is a big development. If he’s in the squad next weekend, that’s huge.

    Damn. I hope surgery is not required for whatever the issue is. Would be great to have him back out there by start of the new year (of course, before then would be better).

    Must have been a tear in the hammy. They can take so long to recover from. What a bummer.

    Weah had surgery for hamstring and played faster and stronger after surgery. Ofc it might be way early for surgery for Gio.

    lol, he's not going to have surgery it's obviously a grade 2 sprain (on a MUCH bigger muscle group than the ankle) and it speaks to his toughness he was able to limp off when it happened.

    they only do surgery when the body won't heal naturally and that means what weah and Jozy did and rip the damn thing completely off the bone. A grade 2 usually just means there is plenty of connective tissue left and the body will do its usual great job of rebuilding everything given enough time.

    I'd imagine he's probably targeting an early December return at this point which would be what, 10 weeks? A pretty typical timeline for a grade 2 hammy.

    No surprises there, I think we all expected him not to be available.

    Stop playing on crappy fields against goonish sides in Central America. Oh wait, we can't.

    Unfortunately... this seems to be the case. Especially with our skill players... just keep beating on them... as long as you spread the hacks around so you don't find yourself a man down. To make matters worse... not a lot of refs are getting in line to protect our players on the road in Central America.

    Well this will be the last time we ever have to go through this sort of grind. 2026 there won’t be qualifying and 2030 with so many teams getting in I would imagine it’ll be a much more relaxed process.

    Reyna's was a re-injury of a hamstring tweak for Dortmund from a few weeks earlier, but he played again before the qualifiers. Dortmund seemed to think he was okay.

    Pulisic's wasn't on the trainers. He was trying to do too much, got a little out of control, and got hacked.

    Was he injured in preseason because he played the first three weeks of the season. I remember his third game (Aug 27), which was before the international break in September - he came off in the 64th minute and I remember having the impression he felt a tweak in his hamstring. El Salvador game was on Sept 2.

    would love to blame the CONCACAAF fields and teams but Gio just reinjured something he already tweaked in Dortmund and CPs injury was actually NON contact (he may have done this before) and could have been a weaker ankle ligament from a past injury.

    This is not like a McBride "put your head where none shall place their head" injury due to a hackfest.

    Would love to blame it on that but it is not ....

    now should Dortmund have properly rehabbed Gio before? Great question.

    And why did CPs ankle fold inward like that? Great question.

    Do they? I feel like they often have a lot of injuries too.

    They have their injuries and, like MLS, their home playing conditions are more suited to playing on these crappy fields (with crappy refs) in CA. Euro-based players just aren't conditioned for this. Fact of life. I'd pay really good money to see Italy or France play in Honduras.

    It's not just fields/opponents, it's the trans-continental flights and endless procession of games
