A bit of good news to share. With the club's last preseason game taking place this weekend, Bryan Jordan returned to training Monday after missing the last two weeks with a foot injury and is expected to be available for the game in Tempe against the Chicago Fire.
Edson Buddle (quad), Todd Dunivant (ankle), and Eddie Lewis (hamstring), however, did not practice on Monday and are unlikely to join the club in Arizona for Saturday night's game. Lewis was injured during the Pan-Pacific Championship, while Buddle suffered his injury in training early last week. However, both are expected to be ready for the season opener against D.C. United on March 22. Dunivant, on the other hand, is not likely to feature in that game as he continues his rehabilitation work from an ankle injury that he suffered in 2008 as a member of Toronto FC.
Following today's session, the guys met with the press and talked about Beckham. As Bruce said, "we're pleased with the resolution to that issue and now we can move forward...and go about the business of trying to make our team better." The AC Milan friendly at The Home Depot Center on July 19 was also a popular topic of discussion. But for Klein, "D.C. United in the third week of March is much more important than AC Milan in July."
First Kick is only 12 days away. Who else is excited?
