Red Bulls midfielder Dane Richards has been diagnosed with a hip flexor strain. Richards suffered the injury during the Red Bulls’ 2-2 tie vs. Los Angeles tonight. No time table on how long he will be out. Richards will be evaluated on Monday.
Richards missed the first six weeks of the season with a torn meniscus suffered in pre-season, but had been playing well in recent weeks, providing a speedy threat on the right flank.
If Richards is sidelined for any extended time, Hunter Freeman and Luke Sassano will be in the mix to replace him.
