Bravo Out with Sports Hernia Injury

Wizards forward and designated player Omar Bravo is set to miss three to six weeks with a sports hernia injury. Bravo aggravated the injury on Wednesday night in the team's US Open Cup qualifying game against the Houston Dynamo. The good news is that with KC off this weekend the number of games he misses is down. If he misses the full six weeks Bravo would miss games in Columbus, New England, New York, and LA. This is thanks to another break the weekend of May 7th that would limit his time. Hopefully he misses on the lower side, but the good news is that CJ Sapong has proven himself to be more than capable of playing at this level. With Teal Bunbury and Kei Kamara the team's starting front line should be fine. Ryan Smith is also nearing his return as well which will help as well.

Have you heard any updates at what Ryan's predicted timetable is?

I saw he was playing in scrimmage in the Open Cup training vid. So, thats at least means he's getting there.

Two goals, one red card and a Sports Hernia. How long is his DP contract? Is he contracted next season as well in case he misses more time for other injuries, suspension or what-have-you. I don't think Sporting missed him against Vancouver, though he did play well against Chivas USA. I'd still rather have had Sporting sign better defenders in the offseason.

wow, that's pretty quick to write someone off Drew, you feel the same way about Hassli in Vancouver?
