KC Injury Report

Steven Goff, paging Steven Goff. Please pick up the white courtesy phone and start blogging.

In the meantime....

Fred has left the team and is back in D.C. to rehab the groin. It's not believed to be a long-term problem, but with things like groins you never know.

Jaime went through light training with the team in K.C. today; let's call him questionable for tomorrow.

The weather in Kansas City is hot; mid-to-high 80s. And with this being the Midwest, and high school football season in full swing, and tomorrow being Friday night....well, I'll let you set the over-under on attendance.

The players I talked to from both sides (on the phone today) were aware of the current playoff seedings, which would have United facing KC in the first round. There's also the backdrop of the teams' early-season meeting, where United yielded four goals for the only time this season. And the backdrop of D.C.'s early season hangover after losing in Guadalajara. But both teams have more important things going on; DCU the Supporters Shield and, to a lesser extent, homefield in the Eastern Conference finals, and KC ending this skid and clinching a playoff berth, which could happen as early as this weekend. With Arnaud and Conrad out with red cards and Fred and possibly Jaime also out with the injuries, this could be an interesting night.

"Kansas City's gonna be extremely ready for this game because they're in a playoff race," Ben Olsen said. " If we're not ready for that and we let this Chivas game linger, it's gonna be a long night for us."

That's all I've got right now. More from KC tomorrow.
