MLS Regular Season
OBETZ, Ohio – Columbus Crew midfielder Dilly Duka returned to practice Tuesday after missing Saturday’s match at Chicago for what coach Robert Warzycha said were “personal issues” in his native New Jersey.
“He took care of the things he had to and he’s back,” the coach said.
Duka was not made available for comment.
BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. – Chicago Fire midfielder Pável Pardo didn’t practice on Tuesday and may miss his third straight game when the Fire head to Kansas City on Friday for a matchup of the Eastern Conference’s top two teams.
Pardo missed the Fire’s 3-1 win over Montreal with hamstring tightness, and he was optimistic early last week that he’d be able to return for the Fire’s game against Columbus on Saturday. But when he tried to ease back into training last Tuesday, the 36-year-old injured his calf.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Bobby Convey's first season with Sporting Kansas City has not gone according to plan, with a series of leg injuries forcing him to miss half of the club's games so far.
The season isn't quite over yet, though. After returning to full training for the first time since early August, the veteran left winger still has a chance to be a factor in Sporting's push for a second straight Eastern Conference regular-season title and a deep run in the MLS Cup playoffs.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – There was never a doubt that surgery would be required to fix the chronic instability in Lee Nguyen’s right shoulder. It was just a matter of determining the proper point in time to schedule the operation.
That moment finally arrived on Monday, when the team announced that Nguyen will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing a Latarjet procedure to repair the damage and will likely return to full participation in four months.
