Red Bulls officials have called Altidore’s injury a bruised right knee and say he is day to day. Altidore discussed his knee on the ESPN live chat this afternoon, saying it is fine.
"My knee’s all right," Altidore said via online chat. "It’s day to day. Don’t worry. I’m fine."
His status for Saturday night’s match, and whether he can start, is still questionable. According to a source, Altidore was still feeling soreness in the knee and will be a game-time decision. If he cannot start then Colombian striker Oscar Echeverry will get the call.
