HOUSTON (CBS HOUSTON) – Houston Dynamo forward Romell Quioto will be sidelined from the pitch for two-to-four weeks as he recovers from a separated left shoulder. Quioto suffered the injury late in the first half playing for the Honduran national team last Friday against the United States.
He’s already begun the rehab process and said much of the pain is gone.
“I feel much better,” Quioto said. “The day of the (USA vs. Honduras) game, I received a shot (and) I’ve been taking medication. Today, I feel much better.”
Quioto has been the catalyst for a new look Dynamo offense that has scored seven goals in three games this season. Quioto has scored in each of the first three Dynamo matches, becoming the first player in franchise history to do so.
“I’ve been doing things well through three games,” Quioto said on Thursday. “(Wilmer Cabrera) has talked to me and has told me that the most important thing is for me to recover and be available in the upcoming matches.”
In his absence the Dynamo will look to either Andrew Wenger, Mauro Manotas or Vicente Sanchez
The Dynamo (2-1-0) face the New York Red Bulls (2-1-1) on Saturday at BBVA Compass Stadium with a 7:30 kick time.
