A few of you asked yesterday and it turns out FC Dallas defender George John is listed as "Questionable" for tonight's match in Houston. They're calling it a groin strain, not a fun thing to have if you ask me. He picked it up late in the Seattle game on Wednesday.

What does that mean for the club? Well, if he doesn't go there are a couple options:

1. Brek Shea shifts back to the center back position (yeah I know that one is a popular option).

2. Zach Loyd moves into the middle and Jair Benitez returns to the lineup (probably the least likely here since he was Questionable this week too).

3. Home grown product Moises Hernandez moves into the defense on the left back spot and Loyd goes into the middle.

4. Rookie Bobby Warshaw starts in the middle of the defense, similar to a role he played in college at Stanford.

After that options get slimmer and dicier. 

I guess soon enough we'll find out what this means for tonight's game.
