GENERIC USER - Thursday, June 3, 2010
United States striker Jozy Altidore suffered a mild ankle sprain during Wednesday's training session forcing him to miss Thursday's session.
The injury looks to have occurred when defender Steve Cherundolo fell and rolled onto the back of Altidore's right ankle during an intrasquad scrimmage.
Team doctors have the Villarreal man listed as day to day.
US fans can breath a sigh of relief as x-rays came back negative showing no serious damage.
However the injury does cast doubt as to whether or not Altidore will feature in Saturday's friendly versus Australia.
The New Jersey native will undergo a fitness test prior to Saturday.
Head coach Bob Bradley may be forced to tweak his lineup versus the Aussies br possibly shifting Clint Dempsey up top or rotate Herculez Gomez, Robbie Findley and Edson Buddle in the two forward positions.
