Ahead of the Decision Day clash on the road at rival New York City FC on Sunday afternoon, Philadelphia Union Head Coach Jim Curtin provided an update on the status of the squad.
“He’s back. Trained fully and no real issue with knee. I’ll be honest when the initial MRI was read it was listed as a potential grade 3 sprain which is you’re done. He’s bounced back in a way that doesn’t make a lot of sense and the strength of his knee is stable and he’s trained fully the last couple days and looks great. Knock on wood, its a good spot for Jamiro.”
Sergio Santos and Cory Burke
“Their health is what it is. Cory will be coming back and he hasn't gained 90 minutes of fitness, he's just not there yet. Sergio is the same thing. He's missed some time. He'll be close for this game but I don't think it will be likely to risk him and risk having a setback.”
