Galaxy Striker Buddle Out for a Month

He just tweeted his latest injury.

Buddle has started just eight MLS games this season because of a succession of injuries.

He apparently suffered the injury in the first 15 minutes of last Sunday’s AC Milan friendly and was subbed out.


Despite what Edson tweeted, the official diagnosis is sprained right foot. And there’s no time line on his return, so it’s unclear if he will actually be out a month.

BTW: Alecko Eskandarian does have a broken nose; Dema Kovalenko trained all week – yet to be determined is whether he’s fit enough to play against Kansas City this weekend.

    Thanks for the update Nick. Tough break for Edson after that long recovery from the quad injury.

    Any word on Alecko’s status?

    Nick replies: Checking.

    That is bad news, get well soon Edson!

    Re Alecko, it was reported on another forum that he twittered he had a broken nose, but should be able to continue to play. I guess he won’t be heading the ball much, but that was never his game. I expect we’ll see Gordon take care of those tasks.

    oh cr#p not Alecko too…

    He has been excellent (movement, opening spaces and goalscoring wise) since joining from the other team…

    Holy cow we have to watch that cart horse Gordon again? I knew we should have traded him after he scored against AC Milan.
