Players could return from injury to face the Chicago Fire

The Dynamo have a large list of players out with injuries, but they could see three big names come back to face the Chicago Fire.

While the Houston Dynamo fight to remain to be playoff relevant, we recently got some good news about the health of some players.

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.

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.
