DC United have had an injury spat in the past few weeks, which does not bode well for the Black and Red as they face the Colorado Rapids and their multi-tiered offense on Wednesday. Specifically, Conor Casey could be getting his first start for the Rapids since last season, and in his few appearances so far since returning from his Achilles tear he has looked incredibly hungry for a goal.
Of course, the Rapids have injuries of their own with their leading scorer Omar Cummings knocked out along with Marvell Wynne, a big cog in the middle of their defense. Casey can take over for Cummings, but with Tyrone Marshall taking over for Wynne that leaves a bit of a hole in the middle there. This one could be a shootout with two big offenses facing off against slightly injured defenses.
The game will be at RFK Stadium at 7:30 p.m. ET.
