FRISCO - FC Dallas comes into the match looking much healthier than Portland. On top of that, the Timbers will be missing a key component of its offense due to a suspension.
Here is where both teams stand on the injury front.
OUT: Roy Miller (thigh), Jake Gleeson (tibia surgery), Sebastian Blanco (yellow card accumulation)QUESTIONABLE: Jeff Attinella (thigh), Liam Ridgewell (chest)
Portland's biggest loss this week will be midfielder Sebastián Blanco. Blanco is out due to yellow card accumulation. He is one of the most dangerous players on the Timbers attack, recording seven goals and nine assists on the season. He has scored or assisted on three of the team's last eight goals.
Center back Liam Ridgewell may be forced to miss this one after getting hurt last week. Portland should get back goalkeeper Jeff Attinella this week. He returned to training this week after missing the team's four previous matches. He started 20 consecutive games before that. Steve Clark has started in his place.
OUT: Kris Reaves (left foot stress fracture)
Kris Reaves is the lone man on this week's injury report for FCD, recovering from a foot injury.
