MLS Regular Season
When Brian Mullan was replaced by Kamani Hill to start the second half of Wednesday's loss at DC, the move may have come across as a tactical decision. However, as it came to be known following the match, at halftime Mullan informed the coaching staff that he injured his left knee after slipping near the United penaly area halfway through the first half, which caused the substitution.
Mullan will be further evaluated upon returning to Colorado. His status for Saturday's home match against Sporting KC (7 pm MT) at Dick's Sporting Goods Park remains unclear.
