Charlie Davies Injury & Branko Boskovic Injury Updates

Charlie Davies will miss a couple weeks with a hamstring injury


It didn't look like much, but when Charlie Davies departed from DC United's match against the Colorado Rapids on Saturday with an injury, it meant much more. Davies left with what was called a tight hamstring. Doesn't sound so bad. But according to Travis Clark of MLSsoccer.com, Davies and fellow forward Josh Wolff will both be missing more time than we'd like.

"I think they’ll both be fine, but it’s going to be a couple of weeks minimum," assistant coach Chad Ashton told reporters after training.

Fortunately for all of us, the team is off from MLS action this week, and won't compete again in the league until next Sunday against the Portland Timbers. Davies and/or Wolff could conceivably be back in Portland. At least maybe in a reserve role? Probably not, but one can only hope.

In other news, Montenegran midfielder and designated player Branko Boskovic had successful surgery today following his ACL injury, according to United's press release. He'll miss six months.

Back just in time for MLS Cup 2011! See you there, Branko!
