Brad Davis, Boniek Garcia headline this week's injury report
The list isn't extensive, but the names on the latest injury report, presented by The Methodist Center for Sports Medicine, could be pretty impactful.
Garcia was not part of the gameday roster for the Dynamo's 0-0 draw with Toronto FC last Saturday as he nursed the injury he picked up while on international duty with Honduras. Davis was injured in training earlier this week.
Houston was faced with the absence of both dynamic midfielders in their 1-1 draw in Columbus at the beginning of June. Rookie Jason Johnson was given his first start, and Warren Creavalle was inserted into the midfield as Ricardo Clark covered absences on the back line.
New York will be missing midfielder Ian Christianson (right foot injury), defender Digao (heel injury), midfielder Lloyd Sam (suspension) and defender Roy Miller (international duty). It has also been reported this week that veteran defender Heath Pearce will be shelved for the rest of the season as he undergoes surgery for a hip injury.
