Daily Update: March 10, 2014
With the opening match of the 2014 season swiftly approaching, away to the New York Red Bulls this coming Saturday, the Colorado Rapids were delighted to see the smiling Spanish face of midfielder José Mari at training on Monday. He took a full part in practice, as did in-form striker Deshorn Brown, fresh from netting twice on international duty for Jamaica.
Goalkeeper Clint Irwin is approaching full fitness, following a minor quad strain sustained in the preseason friendly with New England Revolution, though he was not pushed 100% on Monday at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.
Marlon Hairston picked up a slight knee injury during Saturday's intrasquad scrimmage, and was restricted to gentle jogging around the field.
