Twellman placed on season-ending IL

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Revolution has placed forward Taylor Twellman on the team’s season-ending injury list with continued health issues stemming from an Aug. 30, 2008, in-game collision with former LA Galaxy goalkeeper Steve Cronin. 

The decision to move Twellman to the season-ending list was made after he suffered a setback in his rehabilitation in mid-May. He last participated in a Revolution training session on Tuesday, May 18. 

“We're extremely disappointed for Taylor that this setback has ended his season,” Revolution Vice President of Player Personnel Michael Burns. “He was working hard to return to the field in 2010.” 

“My goal from the start of this season was to be back on the field this year,” Twellman said. “I’m very disappointed that this setback has derailed that goal.” 

After a two-week break from league play, the Revolution returns to MLS action on Sunday, June 27, when they host the archrival Chicago Fire at 7 p.m. at Gillette Stadium. For ticket information, call 1-877-GET-REVS or visit revolutionsoccer.net.
