[AMERICANS ABROAD] It's a good thing the midfield is supposed to be the deepest part of the U.S. national team. Yet another midfielder, Benny Feilhaber, injured himself this winter, hurting ankle in training with Danish club AGF Aarhus on Monday. Pending the results of the scan on his ankle, Feilhaber's coach, Erik Rasmussen, said the U.S. midfielder could be out up to 14 days.

Feilhaber is the seventh U.S. midfielder based abroad to be injured this winter. Indeed, every key U.S. midfielder except Michael Bradley and Landon Donovan in Europe and Robbie Rogers in MLS has been injured.

On the positive side, DaMarcus Beasley (Rangers) and Jose Francisco Torres (Pachuca) returned to action over the weekend, and Stuart Holden suited up with the Bolton first team for the first time.

U.S. INJURIES:
-- Dec. 26: DaMarcus Beasley (Glasgow Rangers) thigh;
-- Mid-January: Stuart Holden (Bolton Wanderers) thigh;
-- Jan. 19: Clint Dempsey (Fulham) knee;
-- Jan. 22: Maurice Edu (Glasgow Rangers) ankle;
-- Jan. 31 Steve Cherundolo (Hannover) shoulder;
-- Feb. 3: Ricardo Clark (Eintracht Frankfurt) calf.
-- Feb. 6: Jose Francisco Torres (Pachuca) hamstring;
-- Feb. 15: Benny Feilhaber (AGF Aarhus) ankle.
