Ante Razov may have sprained his left knee in Thursday's match at FC Dallas. If so, the Chivas USA striker might be done for the year.
Razov is slated for an MRI on Friday upon returning to LA but initial fears are that he sprained his knee.
Unlike last year, when Razov broke down in the latter half of the year, Razov has been relatively injury free. A year ago, he played in the first leg of the conference semis but did not play in the second leg, a 2-0 loss to Houston.
I'd like to think Chivas USA have enough to overcome the loss of any one player but Razov isn't just any one player. He's one of their most experienced players and will be a significant loss. At least they'll have two games to get used to the Maykel Galindo - John Cunliffe/Laurent Merlin forward tandem.
On second though, why bother playing Galindo now? Or Suarez? Or Marsch? Or anyone who has had any sort of injury recently, a sprained ankle, a bruise, a cut, a hangnail, anything small now. It's time for Eder Robles, Anthony Hamilton and Erasmo Solorzano to lace 'em up.
