While FC Dallas didn’t have to deal with a ton of injuries at the beginning of the preseason camp, one big one has hit the team as they head into the start of the regular season on Saturday.

During a media call on Wednesday, FC Dallas manager Luchi Gonzalez gave an update on the health of his team. For the most part, Gonzalez stated that his team is healthy and fit going into the new season except for one player who picked up a knock in training this week.

Jesus Ferreira picked up a shoulder injury on Tuesday according to Gonzalez that could see him sidelined for up to three-to-five weeks. Gonzalez mentioned that Ferreira suffered some ligament damage to his shoulder.

For now, we know that Ferreira will not be available this weekend as FC Dallas begins their 26th season against the Colorado Rapids.

This is certainly a disappointment for Ferreira and the club as the young forward was looking good in his preseason camps both with the team in Frisco and with the United State national team.
