After suffering a sprained right
ankle in the 41
st minute of a 1-0 win against Celtic FC at PPL Park
Wednesday, midfielder Roger Torres is expected to miss approximately two weeks
while recovering.

"Roger Torres is
going to be out for a couple of weeks,” said Union manager Peter Nowak
following the club’s second win in four days, a thrilling 2-1 win vs Toronto on
Saturday.

The good news for Philadelphia is that if Torres is in fact able to return within two weeks, he may not
miss another league match after sitting out against Toronto.

The Union have a bye next
weekend before returning to MLS action July 31 against the New England Revolution at PPL Park.
The club will keep busy during the two week break with a pair of friendlies,
one against Manchester United this Wednesday, July 21 at Lincoln Financial
Field and another against the Harrisburg City Islanders July 27 at the Skyline Sports Complex.
