Dempsey verdict set for Tuesday

If you were waiting for an update on Clint Dempsey's health status, it appears as though you will have to wait until Tuesday for an official verdict.

Dempsey underwent scans on Monday on the right knee he injured during Fulham's 2-0 loss to Blackburn on Sunday and while the early prognosis before the scans was a PCL injury, Yanks Abroad is reporting that official word on Dempsey's injury won't come until Tuesday.

Roy Hodgson made comments after Sunday's match stating that the early prognosis was cruciate ligament damage. Nothing official has come after that, leaving us to wait on word on whether the injury is a serious one that will force Dempsey out of the World Cup, or a mild injury that will require rehab that can be completed before June.

If any word on Dempsey's status surfaces before Tuesday, we will pass it along.
