Spoke w Boniek Garcia today. Said he lost vision in his right eye late in first half last week. Is back and said he should be ready for Sun— Darrell Lovell (@DarrellLovell) September 26, 2014
With Boniek returning on the right side of the midfield, we should see more creativity going into the attack. It's also a very good sign that he's coming back as early as he is. Concussions can sideline players for a very long time, as we saw firsthand this season with Ricardo Clark missing 9 games of the season with his symptoms.
Darrell Lovell also had some promising news about the status of Jermaine Taylor and leading goal scorer Will Bruin.
Kinnear said he had fingers crossed on Bruin and Taylor regarding Sunday.— Darrell Lovell (@DarrellLovell) September 26, 2014
Regardless of how fans feel about Bruin, he's having himself a pretty good season from a scoring perspective. Giles Barnes and Bruin had developed a very good rapport before Bruin was sidelined with his injury. Barnes then paired well with Omar Cummings, who filled in for the injured Bruin. Bruin's return would provide Dominic Kinnear with plenty of good and in form striking options up top. Defensively, a healthy Jermaine Taylor adds proven depth and would likely take his spot back in the central defense from the rookie A.J. Cochran. If Taylor isn't 100%, Cochran and Horst have just begun to show signs of improvement in their communication and work together. Rushing Taylor and Bruin back is not the most immediate concern, but getting Boniek back on the field is, and it sounds like he's the most healthy.
