Injury Update: Oscar Pareja gives update on Michael Barrios

It doesn't sound like Barrios will be available this weekend.

The question on a lot of people's mind this week has been on the status of Michael Barrios. The Colombian picked up a knee injury on this play last weekend thanks to a tackle by New England Revolution keeper Bobby Shuttleworth.

As FC Dallas preps for San Jose this weekend it looks like the winger will not be able to go as the team heads to the west coast. Steve Hunt had the latest update from training yesterday and it doesn't sound good.

This week appears out of the question for sure, next Thursday against Houston is a bit of a stretch in my mind as well. I wouldn't shock me to see him sit out the next three games and then get the two week Copa America break to fully heal.

Even if Barrios was healthy to go this weekend would you risk him against a physical team like San Jose?
