A hamstring injury could keep the league's leading scorer out tomorrow in Pennsylvania.

We've been over how important the New York Red Bulls' recent run of games has been.

Tomorrow's match-up with the Phlladelphia Union is no different. And the Red Bulls might have to take the field at PPL Park without Bradley Wright-Phillips.

Wright-Phillips missed Friday's practice, but Head Coach Mike Petke waved it away as "precautionary." He told reporters there was no tear or pull, just that he felt "a little something in there."

If Wright-Phillips can't go, the Red Bulls can move Tim Cahill up front, where he plays for Australia, or go with Saer Sene in their new-fangled 4-3-3/4-4-2 diamond.
