MLS Regular Season
The Houston Dynamo could get a boost to their struggling defense with the possible return of Corey Ashe.
The starting left back has missed the past two games, including last weekend’s 4-2 defeat to Toronto FC, with injuries to his left knee. Head coach Dominic Kinnear said he’s feeling good about Ashe’s ability to play Saturday, also against Toronto (8 p.m. CT; TICKETS).
Inspirational performances and consistent production got Brad Davis to Brazil. Now the Dynamo captain is aiming for more of the same for the rest of the season, fortified by a boost in self-belief that comes from representing his country on soccer’s greatest stage.

As the team searches for answer, the window is an enticing time to see if there is a fix. That is not the outlook the club is taking, however.
