As if the struggling LA Galaxy needs any more problems or headaches this season, the team will be forced to play with defensive midfielder Jermaine Jones for almost a month.
Which means the U.S. international will miss Sunday’s encounter against the Red Bulls at Red Bull Arena.
Jones suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his right knee during the Galaxy’s 2-2 tie with the Chicago Fire last weekend and will be sidelined for at least a month.
He incurred the injury in the 42nd minute. Joao Pedro and Baggio Husidic took over for Jones at central midfield.
The Galaxy is in ninth place in the Western Conference with a 2-5-2 mark and eight points. The Red Bulls (5-5-1, 16) are fifth place in the Eastern Conference.
