D.C. United goalkeeper Steve Cronin is out "several weeks" after suffering a broken wrist this week, the team announced on Thursday.

Cronin, acquired in a December trade with the Portland Timbers for Troy Perkins, hurt his wrist during a training session on Tuesday. United's only healthy keepers in camp are two un-signed trialists, Chase Harrison and Joe Willis.

Bill Hamid is still on the comeback trail from offseason shoulder surgery and isn't expected to be ready for the start of the season. Cronin was on track to be the starter for the team's opening match on March 19 against the Columbus Crew.

Do you think this is a big problem for D.C.? Do you think the team should try to sign an experienced veteran, or start the season with Harrison and/or Willis?
