Sanchez Out 4-6 Weeks

Bad news today as Sanchez's MRI yesterday revealed a knee sprain that will keep him out 4-6 weeks.  He sprained the knee in the 5th minute of Saturday night's game but played through it until halftime, scoring the winning goal in the process.

He'll miss the next 4, probably 5, games for sure.  If its the short 4 week recovery time he could be back for the game on 6/1 against Houston or more likely the 6/4 against Chicago.  If its the longer 6 week recovery time the team will almost certainly keep him shut down through the World Cup break and bring him back when the league restarts on 6/28 against Vancouver.  That would be 7 total games missed and probably the worst case scenario unless the injury turns out to be worse than they realize right now.

In his absence we'll need Powers back ASAP and players like Serna and Eloundou are going to have to step up and provide creativity and attacking chances from midfield.
