This week's injury report, presented by Houston Methodist, remains unchanged from the last several weeks but it appears that the Dynamo are nearing full strength as they enter the final month of the regular season.
Calen Carr, Eric Brunner and Andrew Driver have spent time on the injury report in recent weeks, but head coach Dominic Kinnear has had all three at his disposal during training this week. The three are still listed as questionable for Friday night's clash against the Montreal Impact (7:30 p.m. CT; TICKETS). Brian Ownby, still nursing a right knee sprain suffered against the Philadelphia Union, is the only player listed as out.
Montreal faces the absence of defensive midfielder and designated player Hernan Bernadello with a left ankle sprain, and veteran defender Alessandro Nesta, while not listed on the injury report, looks to doubtful to make an appearance in Houston. 23-year-old Wandrille Lefèvre made his first MLS start in Nesta's place against the Chicago Fire in a 2-2 draw last weekend and could be called upon again on Friday.
