The Houston Dynamo have returned home for a week-and-a-half of training before resuming their preseason travels with a tournament in Atlanta. In the meantime, forward Brian Ching and midfielder Brad Davis will have a few days off, after picking up injuries during the games in Orlando. Ching expects to return to action next Monday in a scrimmage against San Jacinto College, while Davis expects to return by the end of this week.
Veteran defender Eddie Robinson will be an important figure for the Dynamo this season, as they welcome many new faces to the club and look to bounce back from a disappointing 2010.
As the Dynamo continue to search for a speedy forward to stretch the defense, Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle wonders if a player who wore orange last season might be the answer.
