Kevin Hartman making strides toward Sunday return

Thursday marked Kevin Hartman’s second full training session of this week and it looks like the veteran goalkeeper could very well be back between the posts for FC Dallas on Sunday night, when they welcome a Colorado team coached by ex-FCD player and assistant coach Oscar Pareja.

Dallas coach Schellas Hyndman said he sees definite progress in Hartman through his first few practices of the week after he missed the last three games with back spasms, however he’d still like to see more.

“I talked to him yesterday and he said he’s doing fine. Doing fine and doing great are two different words. I want to hear him say I’m doing great,” Hyndman said. “That kind of tells me that there isn’t any tightness there and when he gets up in the morning, he doesn’t have to have his wife tie his shoes and all those types of things that you don’t see when he’s not around. I think he’s making very good progress.”
