Just two days stand between the U.S. Men’s National Team and a vital World Cup qualifier against Honduras, but Jordan Morris’ status remains up in the air.
The USMNT forward missed training on Wednesday afternoon as he worked out alone in the last full session before Friday’s World Cup qualifier against Honduras. Morris also missed out on Tuesday’s session and is currently being viewed as “day-to-day” due to an ankle injury.
Morris’ injury came in the Seattle Sounders’ win over the New York Red Bulls over the weekend but it was not deemed serious enough to keep him out of USMNT camp.
However, Morris’ ankle issue is a concern to a now-weakened USMNT forward pool. Following an injury to Bobby Wood, the U.S. has just Morris, Jozy Altidore, Clint Dempsey and Chris Wondolowski as forward options on the current roster.
