Ryan Meara Ready For Reserve Team Minutes

Anthony Gruppuso-US PRESSWIRE

Long-injured goalkeeper Ryan Meara gets closer to a return.

Last year, Ryan Meara's rookie season ended early after a July game in Foxboro against the New England Revolution, when he picked up a hip injury. He wasn't formally shut down until the next month, but you got a bit of a tip when the Red Bulls went out and got Bill Gaudette and Luis Robles.

Meara was supposed to be ready for the beginning of the season, -- and a "tough competition" for the starting spot with Robles -- but his hip kept acting up, forcing the Red Bulls to go get veteran Kevin Hartman.

Now, according to MLSsoccer.com's Franco Panzio, Meara should be ready for reserve team minutes with Toronto FC this weekend.

Good to see.

Thankfully, news of Meara's continued recovery comes as Robles has shaken off the iffy string of results, with many hoping Meara would get back already to supplant the former U.S. national team member.

Maybe Petke will get his tough competition after all...
