Kelyn Rowe is the latest to get the dreaded call from the MLS Disciplinary Committee.

The New England Revolution rookie was suspended a game and fined an undisclosed amount for running through New York Red Bulls goalkeeper Ryan Meara and kicking him in the head during the final minutes of the Revolution's victory over the Red Bulls on Sunday.

Rowe was running onto a through ball from Shalrie Joseph, and when Meara came out sliding to collect the ball, Rowe's momentum took his shin into Meara's forehead. The challenge was deemed reckless and one that endangered Meara's safety, and it will cost Rowe the Revolution's match against Toronto FC this Saturday.

Video of the challenge is after the jump:
