MOST COMMENTED

[MLS SCHEDULE: Week 5] Several teams have been hit hard by injuries -- San Jose and Real Salt Lake immediately come to mind -- but at least they have picked up wins. The New York Red Bulls will be looking for their first victory in five games when they host the Philadelphia Union on Saturday, and they could once again be at less than full strength.

Thierry Henry remains a question mark with an MCL sprain, and his frontline partner Fabian Espindola picked up a hamstring injury at practice on Tuesday.

Tim Cahill, New York's other Designated Player, only arrived back from World Cup qualifying duty with Australia late Wednesday night, and no decision has been made about his availability.

-- Colorado, another team without a win heading into its game against Portland, got more bad news as Ecuadoran defender Diego Calderon is expected to miss 4-5 months after undergoing microfracture surgery on his right knee on Thursday.
