Henry Sprains MCL, Out Against Montreal (Not That He Was Going To Play, Anyway)

The striker is definitely out for Saturday's game in Montreal, but there's hope he could be back for March 30's match-up with the Union.

Not that you didn't know already, but Thierry Henry isn't going to be playing this Saturday against the Montreal Impact.

According to a tweet MLSsoccer.com's Franco Panzio, an MRI revealed Henry sprained his MCL. Henry came off late Saturday against D.C. United, with reports citing a knee injury that "does not appear serious."

That he won't play against l'Impact is hardly surprising. Even though Montreal put new turf down -- last year's surface at the Olympic Stadium appeared to be squares of turf laid out -- the man never plays on turf, save the carpet at Portland's Jeld-Wen Field.

Panzio's tweet does suggest he could be back for the March 30 game against the Philadelphia Union.

Good thing the Red Bulls signed trialist and former Paris Saint-Germain forward Peguy Luyindula this morning...
