Joseph doesn’t make trip to San Jose after being downgraded

The New England Revolution athletic training staff released the Friday injury report, with one noticeable downgrade.

NE Injury Report – April 16, 2010

DOUBTFUL: Nico Colaluca (L knee sprain), Edgaras Jankauskas (R calf strain), Shalrie Joseph (R hip flexor strain)

OUT: Mauricio Castro (R ankle pain), Matt Reis (L shoulder and knee surgeries), Taylor Twellman (concussion)

The biggest news off the injury report is that Shalrie Joseph has been downgraded to DOUBTFUL after being listed as PROBABLE on Tuesday. He did not make the trip with the team to San Jose, and has done little in terms of team participation this week after re-aggravating his hip flexor strain in last Saturday’s game.

Nico Colaluca and Edgaras Jankauskas remain as DOUBTFUL after becoming more and more integrated in the team’s training sessions this week. After doing passing and possession, both players continued to work on fitness with the athletic training staff during the small-sided games and game simulation.

Mauricio Castro continues to work inside with the athletic training staff during training, is still listed as OUT with ongoing ankle pain, while Taylor Twellman has started integrating more with the team on the warm-ups and passing, before going off to work one-on-one with the medical staff on fitness and cardio. Matt Reis, who has been progressing well since his off-season surgeries, spent most of the week inside doing pool work to help progress his shoulder rehab.
