Braun feeling better ahead of San Jose trip

CARSON, Calif. – Good news for Chivas USA on Tuesday as leading scorer Justin Braun returned to practice after recovering from a minor concussion sustained against Toronto FC on Oct. 9. He was forced to sit out the Red-and-White’s match at Seattle last Friday.

“I’m feeling better,” Braun told MLSsoccer.com after practice on Tuesday morning. “I’m just taking it one day at a time. I feel well today.”

Braun currently leads the team with nine goals. He took part in some small-sided scrimmages during Tuesday’s training before doing a number of finishing drills on his own after the rest of the squad had finished.

“It’s definitely nice [to be back on the field],” he said. “It’s never fun to sit out. You always want to be on the field practicing with the guys. It’s a good feeling to be back out again getting some touches.”

Chivas USA will travel to San Jose on Wednesday evening to battle the Earthquakes at Buck Shaw Stadium. Braun will make the trip north and will hope that he feels ready by kickoff to see some time on the field.

“We’ll see what happens tomorrow,” he said. “Hopefully I’ll get some time.”
