FC Dallas Injury Update: Kellyn Acosta and Jair Benitez no longer on the 'out' list

The injury report has dwindled down to three players.

As FC Dallas continues to prepare for this weekend's game with the Colorado Rapids, the updated injury report for this weekend's game has been released. For FCD, the list is rather short for a change.

Out: George John (right knee), Hendry Thomas (ACL tear), Chris Seitz (quad tear)

Yes, that is is. Just three names, two of them being very long-term injuries in John and Thomas. Seitz is a different story as we all know but he is still slated to return before the end of the season, if not much sooner than that.

That means some usual suspects have fallen off the report. Kellyn Acosta had been listed on the report since his injury back in the spring. He has been training for a couple weeks and was pushing really hard to return by the Aston Villa friendly. While that didn't happen, seeing him be taken off the injury list is a good sign. Steve Hunt has the best report on Acosta:

Jair Benitez is also off the injury report after being on there for the few weeks with an ankle injury. While that is said to be 100% healthy again, it is unclear as to whether or not he'll be able to beat out Moises Hernandez for the starting spot these days at left back.

Hopefully this injury report stays this short for the remainder of the season.
