Landon Donovan missed training again Thursday, and Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena acknowledged afterward his captain could miss this weekend's game against New England because of a quadriceps strain.
“We've kept him out,” Arena said after Thursday's practice at Home Depot Center. “He's got some nagging injuries. Since he's come back, he's had a bunch, and we've kept him out of training trying to get him at 100 percent.”
The Galaxy had Paolo Cardozo in Donovan's spot on the right flank in a full-field intrasquad exercise Thursday. Marcelo Sarvas was on the left wing, in place of Mike Magee, who trained partially but was held out of the full-field scrimmage because, Arena said, his situation is “kind of similar to Landon.”
Does Arena expect Magee to be available?
“I'll know tomorrow,” the coach said. “He's likely, I would say.”
