Henry Looks Like He's Out Tommorow

Admittedly, I kind of suck at Henry Watch 2012, but it looks like the Red Bulls are really going out of their way to protect their superstar even though he looked threatening (but lacking in the finishing department) against Chivas USA, his first game back from a hamstring injury that sidelined him for four games.

That "protection" manifests itself in "precautionary measures" and with the Bulls likely keeping Thierry Henry out of the line-up tomorrow for the Open Cup game against the Harrisburg City Islanders.

Take it away shampoo-commercial-model-turned-assistant-coach Halvorsen...

"With Thierry, he still feels a little bit in his hamstring, but he’s on the way back," Red Bulls assistant head coach Jan Halvor Halvorsen told reporters following Friday’s training session. "Of course, he played against [Chivas USA on May 23], but we will prepare that he is back for the Chicago game [on June 17]. We haven’t taken any decision about this game on Tuesday with him."

I don't blame the team for keeping him out of the line-up again, especially if he "still feels" it, but just like how Henry won't play on turf, you wonder if Henry isn't enthused to hike out to central PA (and I lived in Harrisburg for a summer. I can understand why. Suffice it to say my time out there was interesting.)

You also wonder how much longer Kenny Cooper can go before he needs a rest.
