Harbottle injures left knee at training on Friday
Attacking midfielder Kevin Harbottle is not available for Colorado's match against Portland Saturday afternoon after injuring his left knee late in Friday's training session, coach Oscar Pareja told ColoradoRapids.com. Harbottle, who started the first four matches of 2013, will have an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of the injury and the time he’ll miss while recovering.
Harbottle joins a big number of Rapids players who are unavailable for the match, with goalkeeper Matt Pickens (broken arm), defenders Diego Calderón (knee surgery) and Anthony Wallace (groin), midfielders Pablo Mastroeni (quad strain), Jaime Castrillón (knee surgery), Jamie Smith (hamstring), and Martín Rivero (broken foot) all missing. Colorado is also without Drew Moor, who will be serving the first of a two game suspension following his red card in Los Angeles.
