That sound you hear is Sporting Kansas City fans breathing a collective sigh of relief.

Roger Espinoza had an MRI and X-rays taken on Monday morning and has been ruled out two to four weeks with a right anterior medial ankle sprain. Espinoza sustainted the knock in the second half of Sporting KC's 1-1 draw with the Columbus Crew on Sunday. He is expected to return to Kansas City immediately for additional evaluation and treatment.

The timeframe of recovery for Espinoza means he could be back in time for Sporting KC's playoff run, but likely will miss the remainder of the regular season. Espinoza will miss Honduras' upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Panama and Canada because of the injury.

What do you think of this development? Concerned about Espinoza returning to top form? Just happy he will be back in time for the playoffs?
