Collin Out Six Weeks
Sporting KC took a big blow today with the news that starting defender, Aurelien Collin will miss the next 6 weeks due to a back injury. Collin picked up the injury in the Wizards 4-2 win over Toronto FC over the weekend, having to be subbed just after the hour mark. The Frenchman looks set to miss the rest of the long home stand for KC due to the injury. Certainly a big blow for KC as Collin and Matt Besler had formed a solid partnership in the middle of defense. Now Besler looks set to partner Julio Cesar for the next few games. There's the possibility that Daneil Cyrus could replace the Collin, but I firmly believe that Cyrus wouldn't have played against Toronto if not for Cesar already having been subbed out of the game. Hopefully the loss of Collin doesn't hurt KC too much.
