Galaxy, Chivas USA & Sol Injury Update

As promised, here’s a look at who’s in and who’s out of this weekend’s games:

Galaxy –
*The tight-lipped Galaxy organization aren’t telling all their secrets, but I was able to glean that striker Edson Buddle will not travel with the team for Saturday’s game against San Jose in Oakland because he’s still bothered by a quad strain that has kept him out of action since the season began. BTW, it takes Buddle a little longer than other players to come back from comparable injuries I was told today.

*Defender Todd Dunivant and young forward Tristan Bowen of Van Nuys are with the 18-man travel roster for the first time this season, although that doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll see action, of course.

*Midfielder Dema Kovalenko, having completed his suspension, is on the squad; striker Alan Gordon and defender Gregg Berhalter are both suspended after their respective red cards last week.

Chivas USA –
*Not much new with Chivas USA for the showdown with Seattle at Home Depot Center Saturday since Burling, Jazic, Kennedy, Razov, Suarez, Vaughn and Victorine are all still out; neither Braun or Galindo are in full training, but are officially listed as doubtful.

*BTW, check out this little video with an unexpected star.

Sol –
Chinese striker Han Duan won’t play Sunday in Carson against FC Gold Pride; she’s back in her homeland playing in the Chinese Provincial Games.
