Nesta and Henry out of Saturday's clash

[MLS INJURY REPORT] Alessandro Nesta and Thierry Henry, MLS's two former World Cup champions, will miss Saturday's Montreal-New York match due to injuries.

Montreal will be without Nesta for at least two weeks with an adductor strain suffered early in the Impact's 2-1 win over Toronto FC.

Montreal moved right back Hassoun Camara into Nesta's place. Jeb Brovsky moved from the left side to the right, and Dennis Iapichino came in at left back.

Henry suffered a sprained MCL late in the Red Bulls' 0-0 tie with D.C. United and will miss at least Saturday's game.

The Red Bulls will also be without Tim Cahill (Australia) and Roy Miller (Costa Rica) on World Cup duty. Whether or how long 38-year-old Brazilian Juninho goes on Olympic Stadium's artificial turf remains to be seen.
