Charlie Davies Injury A Strained Hamstring, Will Be Reevaluated Later In Week

Via Steven Goff of the Washington Post, Charlie Davies of D.C. United (3-4-3) did indeed strain his hamstring in Saturday night's 1-1 draw with the Colorado Rapids (4-3-3). The injury will be reevaluated later this week. It was a rough night all around for Davies, as Goff notes:

Charlie Davies strained his right hamstring and will be reevaluated this week...Presumably disappointed with the injury and his missed opportunity to impress U.S. Coach Bob Bradley, Davies left the locker room before reporters arrived. (To cap his forgettable evening, Davies lost the MLS scoring lead after Landon Donovan’s two-goal performance against Kansas City.)

Davies first half performance, much like his United teammates' efforts, could best be classified as lackluster in half one, with the Davies injury departure occurring at the 34th minute. Davies' teammates were able to extract a draw with an inspired second half of play and a questionable call in their favor, leading to the typing penalty kick by DCU's Chris Pontius.
