FRISCO - Both FC Dallas and the LA Galaxy could be missing some key factors from their Week 1 matches as we take a look at the Texas Health Sports Medicine Injury Report for Week 2.
OUT: Perry Kitchen (undisclosed), Juninho (undisclosed)
QUESTIONABLE: Romain Alessandrini (hamstring), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Achilles)
The Galaxy are set to be missing at least one starter from last weekend's win over Chicago, and potentially the key to their offense. According to LA Times beat writer Kevin Baxter, Romain Alessandrini is expected to be out at least two weeks with a hamstring strain picked up last week against Chicago. It remains to be seen if Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be available for #FCDvLA after missing time in training this week with an Achilles injury.
LA are expecting to see the return of Sebastian Lletget, though, who missed last week's opener with an undisclosed injury. Perry Kitchen and Juninho are expected to be out as well with undisclosed injuries of their own keeping them sidelined for a second straight week.
OUT: Jacori Hayes (hamstring), Cristian Colman (left ACL tear), Francis Atuahene (ruptured left pectoral)
QUESTIONABLE: Callum Montgomergy (high ankle sprain)
After leaving the season opener with a hamstring injury, FC Dallas will be without Jacori Hayes as they face the LA Galaxy on Saturday at Toyota Stadium. The opportunity could present itself for Paxton Pomykal to get his first start of the season after coming on in Hayes' place last week.
SuperDraft pick Callum Montgomery remains questionable as he works his way back from a high ankle sprain suffered in Tucson, but is expected to return to training next week. Cristian Colman and Francis Atuahene will spend much of the first half of the season on the injury report, Colman recovering from a torn ACL last year and Atuahene from a torn pectoral muscle suffered during preseason.
