Red Bulls teen phenom and leading scorer Caden Clark won’t be playing against the New England Revolution Wednesday night or against Atlanta United this Saturday as well.
The 18-year-old Clark underwent an appendectomy Monday and has been listed as week to week by the team.
It should be noted that the Red Bulls’ injury report was posted by the club on its website at 11:49 ET Tuesday, a day after Clark’s surgery. It wasn’t publicized until the Red Bulls announced their lineup on Twitter about an hour before the kickoff vs. the Revs.
Clark has recorded four goals and two assists in eight matches this MLS season.
As a rookie in 2020, he scored twice in seven games.
