Monday Kicks: No Timetable for LA Galaxy’s Landon Donovan to Resume Full Training & More

*That’s mainly because Galaxy coach and GM Bruce Arena is being typically cagey about Landon Donovan’s unspecified injury that kept him out of the final two U.S. World Cup qualifying games — at least until the MLS injury report is released Tuesday — and declined to say anything speciifc about it Monday.

“He’s inside working in the gym,” is all Arena would offer today, adding that the Galaxy don’t play in San Jose until Sunday against the Earthquakes (thanks for the schedule reminder, Bruce).

Defender Todd Dunivant was back out on the training field today after a hip pointer kept him out of the last Galaxy game.

I’ll have more on the injury to Donovan — from a U.S. national team perspective — in Tuesday’s column.

*Incidentally, Arena couldn’t have been thrilled to hear that designated player Robbie Keane will need a pain-killing injection Tuesday to suit up for Ireland in their crucial World Cup qualifier.

*Also, it sounds like Chivas USA defender Ante Jazic is enjoying the break from MLS to play for Canada Tuesday.
