The late-week injury list was released by the team’s athletic training staff after training this morning. The story of the week was Taylor Twellman being placed on season-ending injured reserve on Wednesday after he experienced a setback in his attempt to come back from a head injury he suffered in 2008.
Along with Preston Burpo, who suffered multiple fractures in his lower right leg in the game against New York on May 29, he and Twellman are two names you will not see move from the “OUT” list for the rest of the 2010 season.
NE Revolution Injury List - June 25, 2010
PROBABLE: Kevin Alston (lower back strain), Mike Videira (L ankle sprain)

Kevin Alston tweaked a muscle in his lower back last week during an off-week training session, but has been present at training and is listed as PROBABLE for Sunday’s match against Chicago. Mike Videira is also listed PROBABLE for Sunday with a left ankle sprain. Videira has been present at training all week.
Pat Phelan made some cranial contact with a teammate during training on Friday morning on an aerial loose ball and though he was not seriously injured, he is listed as QUESTIONABLE for the Chicago game.
Darrius Barnes remains OUT while he recovers from a right foot sprain he suffered at Columbus on May 8. Barnes is becoming more active, beginning to jog out at training this week.
