Report: New York Red Bulls still waiting on Bradley Wright-Phillips fitness update

RBNY's injury woes aren't necessarily over for this week.

Gideon Baah is out for the season. Connor Lade is out for the season. Dax McCarty and Damien Perrinelle are gone 'til September (at least). Anyone else want to join the New York Red Bulls' injury list?

Well, since you asked: Bradley Wright-Phillips is currently hovering nervously outside the RBNY physio room.

BWP limped out of RBNY's last game - against LA Galaxy - at his own request. A resilient player, who typically takes a lot of contact during a match and, per Jesse Marschnever asks to be taken out, it is to be hoped the veteran got himself out of harm's way in LA soon enough to have escaped any lasting damage.

Per Big Apple Soccer, the team still didn't have conclusive news on BWP's status when it was breaking the bad news about Lade and Perrinelle. Though BAS reports the team's top scorer is "feeling better".

But RBNY's current luck with injury isn't great. Fingers crossed for BWP's swift and safe return to the Red Bulls' match-day squad.
