Teal Bunbury injured during scrimmage with Houston
Sporting Kansas City forward Teal Bunbury was injured in a scrimmage with the Houston Dynamo. Bunbury and Houston defender Andrew Hainault tangled and Bunbury went down hard.
Teal was taken to the hospital and the early reports are that he dislocated his elbow. It is obviously unknown how long he will be out and how this will affect his training and possible US National team duties.
With Ryan Smith having not yet trained with the team do to a lingering knee rehab and Teal's injury, the forward position is looking a little weaker than expected at the moment.
Sporting Kansas City and Houston did resume the scrimmage after Bunbury was taken to the hospital. The Dynamo won 3-1 with the lone goal for Kansas City coming from Chance Myers. It is unknown at this time if the other scrimmage with the US 18's took place.
Sporting Kansas City is scheduled to come home for a few days before heading back to Arizona for the next phase of pre-season.
