Houston Dynamo nearing clean bill of health on latest injury report
The injury bug has subsided and international duty has passed as the Dynamo are finally back to full health this Saturday against Toronto FC (8 p.m. CT; CSN Houston, MLS Live)
The only Dynamo players listed on this week's injury report, presented by The Methodist Center for Sports Medicine, are forward Calen Carr (left knee) and defender Anthony Arena (right ankle sprain).
Midfielders Brad Davis and Boniek Garcia return to the Dynamo from international duty with the United States and Honduras, respectively, after missing the last two MLS matches. Garcia exited Honduras' 2-0 win over Jamaica on June 11 after just 29 minutes with an injury concern, but he was able to return as a second half substitute during Los Catrachos' loss to the U.S. on June 18 and will be available for the Dynamo this weekend.
For Toronto, Richard Eckersley (left hamstring strain), Stefan Frei (left hamstring strain) and Andrew Wiedeman (right MCL sprain) are all listed as "out" for Saturday's matchup. Forward Danny Koevermans will be available for selection after recovering from a torn ACL.
The Dutch designated player made his return in a brief stint during Toronto's 1-1 draw against Philadelphia on June 1, but could play a larger role against Dynamo. Koevermans has scored 17 goals in just 27 appearances for Toronto FC since joining the squad in the summer of 2011.
