While Tim Howard is prospering in England (see the item below), former DCUer Bobby Convey is done for the rest of Reading's campaign. This will also likely affect his availability for the national team at Gold Cup and Copa America.
I tried to link to the Reading FC dispatch on their Web site, but you would probably need a password to read it. So here's the AP story:
READING, England (AP) -- United States midfielder Bobby Convey will miss the rest of Reading's season because of another knee surgery.
The 23-year-old Convey sustained a knee injury during last summer's World Cup in Germany and already had one surgery in December. Manager Steve Coppell said the injury is not career-ending.
Convey, who hasn't started a Premier League game since October, was replaced by Stephen Hunt while recovering.
"(Convey) doesn't feel right with it," Coppell said. "I have no doubt that he could have played on to the end of the season. But we don't want him coming back in preseason and him saying 'It still doesn't feel right'. Now we have the opportunity to do something about it and hopefully correct it."
Convey joined Reading in 2004. Reading is sixth in the Premier League with 43 points.
