Injury issues continue to plague the Houston Dynamo, this time striking goalie Pat Onstad.
The 41-year-old goalie, who had missed the last two league matches because of an abdominal injury, now heads to Germany for surgery. Recovery time is expected to last between 10 to 20 days, meaning he could be back by the end of the month.
Tally Hall, who has filled in for Onstad recently, will continue to start in his place. The Dynamo could get good news this week, with Geoff Cameron possibly in line to return this week in SuperLiga on Thursday.
Here are a few other stories for the evening:
