MOST COMMENTED

[MLS: The USA 20] There is good news on the U.S. national team front regarding MLS players who have missed one or more weeks with injuries. Most have returned to practice and could contribute this weekend. All 20 World Cup hopefuls -- the 19 called in for the USA-Mexico game, plus Seattle's Brad Evans -- have yet to play on the same weekend.

Evans has been out since suffering a calf injury in the Sounders' second game of the season but he is back to 100 percent fitness.

At Real Salt Lake, Nick Rimando (knee) and Luis Gil (groin-hamstring) could contribute this weekend, according to Coach Jeff Cassar. Brad Davis returned to practice with Houston on Thursday after injuring his ankle in the loss to FC Dallas on April 5.

A decision on Michael Bradley's availability for Toronto FC's match Saturday at FC Dallas will likely be made on Friday. He missed last week's home game against Colorado with groin and quadriceps strains.

Back-to-back shutout wins with Andrew Dykstra in goal will likely result in Bill Hamid, who had been bothered by a foot/toe injury after returning from the USA-Mexico game, remaining on the D.C. United bench at Columbus.

    Lots of discussion about players that is meaningless. Discussions should point to the players pluses & negatives in the team concept and tactics; who cares about the rest.
