Maurice Edu has been ruled out of Wednesday's World Cup qualifier against Costa Rica in Saprissa Stadium.

The defensive midfielder was scheduled to travel to Miami on Sunday, but will remain in Glasgow to have his knee further evaluated. Edu, whose future in the Confederations Cup is also in jeopardy, picked up the knee injury in Rangers' league final against Dundee United on May 24. No word yet on if a replacement will be called to fill in for Edu's spot on the roster.

With Edu out, the remaining options at center mid to pair Michael Bradley with are Pablo Mastroeni, Jose Francisco Torres, Sacha Kljestan and Benny Feilhaber.

Do you think Edu would have started had he not been ruled out? Who would you start next to Bradley now? Has this opened the door for Benny Feilhaber?
