Here’s the latest on the FC Dallas injury situation after training Friday according to FCD head coach Schellas Hyndman.
F FABIAN CASTILLO (left ankle sprain)
Hyndman’s take: We put him out there today. He’s a player that we could potentially dress tomorrow and have on the bench but we’ll make that final decision shortly.
D UGO IHEMELU (concussion symptoms)
Hyndman’s take: When you talk about player’s health, is it worth one game to get him back injured? Is it worth two games? He’ll let us know when he’s ready.
M CARLOS RODRIGUEZ (left elbow dislocation)-returned to training this week
Hyndman’s take: “I think his elbow’s fine. He’s OK with it but sometimes you pick up other injuries and right now, he’s straining a tender back. But I think he’s good enough to be out on the field sometime. Yeah, I don’t know how to gauge it [where he’s at right now mentally] except that he needs to play.
M RICARDO VILLAR (right foot strain)-returned to some drills this week
Hyndman’s take: We got him into our training, which is we’re only going 30 percent. I think it was good for him. I think the next couple weeks, he should be making strides.
