Not that it came as any surprise, but New England goalkeeper, Preston Burpo, will miss the rest of the season while recovering from successful reduction surgery. Burpo sustained distal tibia and fibula fractures during Saturday’s win over New York.
Not all the news from the Revs’ injury report was negative, though. Matt Reis, the longtime Revolution (3-6-2, 11 pts.) keeper, has been taken off the IR and was practicing today. Reis was put on the IR back on April 30 so he could continue to recover from surgery on his left shoulder that repaired his labrum and rotator cuff.
The Revs travel to Seattle this weekend, where they take on the struggling Sounders
EDITOR’S NOTE: Reis will not be active in Saturday’s match.
