    Mitchell gives an excellent update on a lot of Crew injuries in his latest blog:
    http://blog.dispatch.com/crew/2009/04/huh_what.shtml

    -Sounds like Noonan might actually be back for our next game.
    -Garey, on the other hand, might be out until June

    Our bye week next week seems to be coming at an excellent time for the Crew. Thank you MLS schedule-makers.

    So, of our 24 man roster, we have five guys out with injury, one on red card suspension and another who hasn't played more than 45 minutes in a match since last year. Wow. They picked a great year to cut roster size (And I picked a great year to start with seaon tickets)!

    So who is our starting 11 for tonight?!

    Going to be a tough game but a lot of these same players will be out for National team duty.

    I think the report on Noonan is overly optomistic if he really suffers from a hernaited disc.

    The rest will be good for Robbie Rogers to get 100 % healthy. Team needs him to run at defenders and cause some havoc in the box.

    Garey-I fiugured it was really bad. Thats unfortuanate-the kid works really hard all the time.

    Moffat-no way he plays 90 today.

    "MF Robbie Rogers

    Rogers (left hamstring) “had a little bit of a setback” on the trip to Salt Lake and Chivas USA. “We let him to go to see what he could do,” Mathews said. “(Rogers) at 90 percent is better than a lot of players at their best.” Rogers is hoped to be in shape for the Chicago game."

    A little bit of a setback? This comes as as shock to me. A shock!

    Amateur hour at Crew stadium.

    Agreed, hammys are difficult injuries and only get worst if not 100% healed.

    The only injury issue of real importance is Marshall's. Everyone else will be back relatively quickly (we can live without Garey for a while). Marshall is irreplaceable, and what I see hanging over his status is a bigass question mark.

    That is the scariest of question marks in my opinion, Marshall's salary is upped so high because he is in the top 3 MLS Center backs. So he is exactly that, irreplaceable.

    Lets hope for the best and when he comes back give him a big welcoming.

    I said it a hundred times before the Mormon's Hookers and Goats tour '09, I'd rather rest a 90% Robbie than play him injured. As noted, hamstrings usually need more healing than it feels like they do, and we do not need RR injuring it any further. I'd rather rest him for 4 weeks, then play him 90% and lose him for 8 weeks.

    Maybe, maybe not... some people really can get 100% better w/in 6-8 weeks from a herniated disc; not saying Noonan will be one of them (esp. from the description of how bad he was at first), but it's not unheard of.

    yup -- that headache on Thursday is a bit scary. It'd be sad to think we've seen our last game w/ Chad at center back, but it may well be the case...

    :(

    Nope, just a mental typo.

    In any event, any news on Marshall or are we all still holding our collective breath?

    Can someone who knows more about sports injuries or at least some facts about noonan shed some light on this. Everyone was saying how a herniated disc was like 6 months recovery time then when I saw him on the bench I had a WTF moment.

    Is his injury not as serious? Will he be fully fit in a few more weeks? Did Colonel Mustard really kill Professor Plum in the study with a pipe?

    ...he was only on the bench to make up the roster, fm an official perspective - he's nowhere near fit.

    As for the healing time - it could be 6 months for all I know.

    I really do wish that people would stop talking about Chad like his career is done. It is really beginning to annoy the f**k out of me.

    We don't know and he has been plying balls with his head all season. It took a flagrant elbow to the face to injure him. I would say that would indicate that he was 100% prior to getting punched in the face three times prior to the final event.

    herniated discs really have a wide variety of healing times; it really is something where someone can be relatively pain free (at one end of the spectrum) in 6-8 weeks -- though that also means that once the player is doing better, he now needs to get into his fitness training (which, from what I read, may be what is going on w/ Noonan, with the hopeful return for Chicago).

    At the other end of the spectrum is months and months of recovery, and in severe cases the injury requires surgery that has a loooong recovery time (fortunately, that's the exception). Something to keep in mind is there's a significant number of people who have no significant pain or limitations from a herniated disc (though that certainly wasn't the case w/ Noonan, from the report). It just depends what the disc is "pushing on" (nerve wise), and how soon (or if) the body heals it.

    It's really a highly unpredictable injury, but from the sounds of it, we might get lucky and Noonan will follow the "best case scenario."

    I think we are just all a little uptight due to what happened with Ross Paule. Concussions are trouble. I hope Chad is fine, but it's not hard to fear the worst here--heck even Chad said so himself.

    The Marshall news is HUGE. And, a few weeks ago, I didn't expect we'd see Noonan until Memorial Day, maybe. Great, great news.

    indeed

    Could you guys imagine Noonan, Moffat, Schelotto, and Rogers all available for us at the same time? And Gaven? And Ekpo?
