[MLS INJURY REPORT] Five MLS players under serious consideration for the U.S. national team's 30-player short list for the World Cup are battling injuries. Here are updates on their status ...

Tony Beltran: The right back did not dress Saturday against Sporting Kansas City after suffering an ankle sprain in the USA-Mexico game for which he was a last-minute callup. He was back at unbeaten Real Salt Lake's practice on Wednesday but is not expected to play Saturday afternoon in RSL's match at Philadelphia.

Brad Davis: The Houston Dynamo captain, who started against Mexico, had his right foot stepped on by former Dynamo teammate Je-Vaughn Watson and went off with an ankle injury at the half of Houston's 4-1 loss to FC Dallas. Dynamo coach Dominic Kinnear described Davis' status as “day-to-day." His status for Saturday's game at New England is uncertain.

Brad Evans: Evans went off in the 29th minute of the Seattle Sounders' second match of the season against Toronto FC with what was described as a calf contusion and has not played since. He was named to the U.S. squad to face Mexico, then replaced by Beltran. He'll likely sit out again Saturday when the Sounders travel to FC Dallas, but they hope to have him back in the lineup April 19 at Chivas USA.

Luis Gil: The midfielder, who did not play against Mexico, suffered an injury in his groin/hamstring area, according to RSL coach Jeff Cassar, in the match at Sporting Kansas City, but he was at practice on Wednesday.

Nick Rimando: Rimando, the player most certain to go to the World Cup (as the No. 3 keeper), played the whole game against Mexico but returned with a knee injury that kept him out of the Sporting KC match and will likely miss the match at Philadelphia, according to Cassar.

SOUNDERS LOSE PAIR. Two new Seattle Sounders players -- Damion Lowe and Kevin Parsemain -- face long layoffs with injuries without having yet played an MLS game.

Lowe, son of former Jamaican international and MLS player Onandi Lowe, underwent successful surgery on his left hip on Monday and is expected to miss four months. Parsemain, a Martinique international signed after a preseason trial with the Sounders, suffered a torn ACL and will undergo surgery in the near future. Parsemain is expected to miss 6-7 months.
