D.C. United’s Sar­vas to miss two weeks with knee in­jury

Baltimore Sun - - SPORTS -

Marcelo Sar­vas, a start­ing fix­ture and ex­pe­ri­enced pres­ence in the heart of D.C. United’s mid­field, will miss at least two weeks and per­haps the rest of the reg­u­lar sea­son with a knee in­jury, club of­fi­cials said Mon­day. Sar­vas suf­fered a mild MCL sprain in his right knee mid­way through the first half of a 4-1 vic­tory over Or­lando City on Satur­day night at RFK Sta­dium. He will sit out Wed­nes­day’s home match against the Colum­bus Crew and Satur­day’s visit to Toronto FC. The club is then off for two weeks be­fore clos­ing the sea­son against New York City FC on Oct. 16 in Wash­ing­ton and at Or­lando a week later. United (8-9-13) is in a four-team race for the last two play­off berths in the East­ern Con­fer­ence. The in­jury comes as Jared Jef­frey is get­ting closer to re­turn­ing af­ter miss­ing four matches with a con­cus­sion. He was a “neu­tral” player in work­outs Mon­day and could play this week, coach Ben Olsen said. MEN’S COL­LEGE SOC­CER: Loy­ola Mary­land sopho­more A.
