MLS Regular Season
Dynamo midfielder Brian Ownby will be out 4-6 weeks after he dislocated his left elbow in Monday's Reserve League match against the Chicago Fire. The 5-foot-11 rookie was injured in the 28th minute of Monday's 1-0 loss, and was substiuted off in the 33rd minute of the match. He will not undergo surgery.
The 2012 Supplemental draft pick has made four appearances with three starts for the Dynamo Reserves this season. Ownby scored Houston's lone goal in a 1-0 win over the Colorado Reserves on March 13.
Eventually a shot was going to go in for Will Bruin, but that has not made the wait to open his 2012 account any easier.
After three games and five weeks it seemed like the second year forward had found everything but the back of the net. Things changed Sunday night as “The Dancing Bear” hit a well placed shot to beat Chicago Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson to the near post in the 24th minute, accounting for Houston’s lone tally in the lightning-shortened 1-1 draw.

So with the Dynamo having two weeks off from MLS play, I decided to take two weeks off from providing fantasy advice. Hopefully your team didn't suffer too much!
This weekend, the Dynamo travel to Chicago for an Eastern Conference tilt with the Fire. Historically, the Dynamo have done well at Toyota Park, coming away with a 3-1-2 record and 10 goals scored in six matches.
