So Who, Exactly, Is Playing This Weekend?

More injuries could force a shake-up Saturday.

It's no secret Hans Backe like shuffling the line-up. The latest example: Shoehorning Rafael Marquez, Teemu Tainio and Dax McCarty into the line-up all at the same time.

Anyway, we already knew Connor Lade would be out of the line-up thanks to his red card against the New England Revolution and that Brandon Barklage would be his replacement. Rafael Marquez, too, figured to be out as he came off in the 35th minute in that same game.

But now, a big question mark in goal with MLSsoccer.com's Franco Paizo reporting Bill Gaudette picked up a lower back injury and his ability to play will largely be influenced by how he feels before Saturday night against Toronto FC. His replacement would likely be mid-season acquisition Luis Robles.
