Kyle Beckerman - Real Salt Lake - closeup

Kyle Beckerman’s status for Real Salt Lake’s season opener is in doubt, according to The Salt Lake Tribune’s Chris Kamrani.

Beckerman, 34, suffered a bone bruise in his left knee in January and has not played a minute in any of RSL’s preseason matches.

“I think to exclude him from the thought process for next week is a little bit short-sighted right now,” RSL GM Craig Waibel told Kamrani on Wednesday. “But I wouldn’t say it’s a lock either. It’s still mostly evaluating, but at the same time, he’s not far off from playing.”

RSL will open the season on March 4 at home against Toronto FC. Beckerman, MLS’s all-time leader for appearances by a field player, is entering his 18th season in MLS and 11th with RSL.
