MLS Countdown 2015: Injury jinx hits hard
| DAY 8: As the MLS preseason is set to wrap up this weekend, teams will pray for one thing: no injuries. Some haven't been so lucky. After losing Ben Zemanski with a knee injury on Sunday, Portland had a fourth midfielder join its injury list when Michael Nanchoff went
off with a hip flexor minutes after he scored Wednesday night. Chicago DP David Accam is doubtful after straining in groin in his Fire debut. For a look at
teams most impacted by preseason injuries. |
