Harbolte joins long list of injured Rapids

[MLS INJURY REPORT] Veterans or newcomers, it doesn't matter. Colorado Rapids players continue to drop like flies: The latest victim is first-year Chilean Kevin Harbottle, who will miss 4-5 weeks with a sprained left knee.

The 22-year-old Harbolte had started four games before sustaining the injury in practice on Friday.

He is one of at least a half a dozen Colorado starters who have been sidelined.

The Rapids' injury woes began when Jaime Castrillon, the team's leading scorer in 2012, had to have offseason knee surgery.

They lost 2012 assist leader Martin Rivero with a broken foot in preseason.

But the injuries picked up since the start of the season. Goalkeeper Matt Pickens was with a broken forearm, central defender Diego Calderon, another offseason signing, is out 4-5 months after knee surgery.

Also sidelined are left back Anthony Wallace and midfielder and Pablo Mastroeni.
