While FC Dallas was killing off the final minutes of their 2-0 win over the Philadelphia Union on Sunday, a bit of a scary incident occurred as Fabian Castillo missed a wide open shot and immediately went to the ground in pain.

Castillo had a wide open far post shot by Philadelphia keeper Andre Blake that just missed the mark but the Colombian would roll around on the ground in pain, holding his leg. He would get stretchered off the field in the final seconds of the game to be evaluated by the team doctors.

Head coach Oscar Pareja spoke to the media about the injury following the game and indicated that he would be out for at least two weeks with an adductor injury.

"In that last play when he went in front, he hurt his adductor," Pareja said at a news conference. "But he will be fine. As I said, it's a muscular problem that can be healed soon. So we will have Fabian probably in the next two weeks. I don't want to over-elaborate on that, but the prognosis from the doctors is okay."

Castillo helped lead the team to the win on Sunday with his goal in the 22nd minute. He also lead the team in shots with three on target.

FC Dallas faces rivals Houston next week before returning home to battle Montreal.
