Add another key player to the injury report

Things are going from bad to worse for Oscar Pareja and his crew. FC Dallas announced today that midfielder Hendry Thomas is now going to be out six to eight weeks thanks to a muscle tear.

The Honduran tweeted out a photo this morning to show that he had a procedure to drain fluid from the injury that happened in his right leg during last Saturday's loss to San Jose.

The Honduran international has been a steady player for FC Dallas in 2014, so losing him for a couple of months is definitely not the news any of us wanted to hear today. Add him to the pile of Kellyn Acosta, Mauro Diaz and guys like George John and Andres Escobar that have or will be missing an extended amount of time this season due to injury.

According to Daniel Robertson at FC Dallas, Pareja has already had to use 21 different starters this year. The club used a total of 23 different starters in all of last year. So, ouch. But hey, the depth is there in the middle of the field right?
