Goalkeeper Sean Johnson is healthy enough to play for New York City FC against the Philadelphia Union at Talen Energy Stadium in Chester, Pa. Sunday.

Johnson had missed City’s last two matches with a should injury as Brad Stuver made his two first appearances of the season in his absence. NYCFC went 1-0-1 with Stuver in the net.

Newcomer Valetin Castellanos, who scored in his MLS debut in a 2-2 draw vs. Vancouver Whitecaps FC Aug. 4, will miss the game with a quadriceps injury.

He is joined by midfielder Yangel Herrera (ankle injury), who is out for the season, and defender Cedric Hountondji (hamstring avulsion).
