INJURY UPDATES: The team received good news on the injury front from their six injured players, including two of the players returning to full training with their teammates today.

FC Dallas had left Spain with six players injured and unable to participate in the final workouts. Two of those players, Steve Jolley and Abe Thompson, did not visit Spain. However, the prognosis at training today was good for the six players:

Ronnie O'Brien - Was back training today at full speed.

Arturo Alvarez - Was back training today at full speed.

Eric Quill - Had tests run on his calf injury and the tests found nothing besides what the team originally thought. He should be 7-10 days away from getting back on the field.

Cornell Glen - Is week-to-week with his ankle injury.

Steve Jolley - Is beginning to work back after having knee surgery and should be 1-2 weeks away from training with team.

Abe Thompson - Is still 3-4 weeks away from coming back after fracturing his cheek bone, but is progressing nicely.
