FRISCO - As FC Dallas prepares to head on the road to take on Atlanta United this weekend, let's take a look at the Texas Health Sports Medicine Injury Report for Week 8.
Atlanta United FC
OUT: Mikey Ambrose (knee), George Bello (hip), Kevin Kratz (calf), Brandon Vazquez (knee), Eric Remedi (head injury/hip)
Atlanta will be missing multiple pieces from their backline and midfield. Midfielder Eric Remedi is recovering from multiple injuries this week including a head injury. Kevin Kratz is still recovering from a calf injury that kept him on the report last week as well. Forward Brandon Vazquez is working through a knee injury while still waiting to see his first playing minutes of the season. Homegrown defender George Bello is working through a hip injury for the second week in a row along with defender Mikey Ambrose who is also continuing to work through a knee injury that has kept him on the injury report for the second week. Although Atlanta has multiple players working through less than ideal injuries their overall lineup has a strong roster to build from.
FC Dallas will see the return of midfielder Bryan Acosta who has been working through an ankle sprain sustained after missing a game for international duty. Forward Dominique Badji is also returning after a hamstring injury occurred in practice before the game against Real Salt Lake. They will be missing midfielder Thomas Roberts as he works through concussion protocol after sustaining a hit this past week.
