Rapids in pictures July 2nd…

The Colorado Rapids held an open training session for season ticket members today, giving supporters an up-close first look at the Rapids newest addition in US International icon and keeper Tim Howard.

The squad was broken up into two groups, one group being the players who most recently played this past Wednesday in the US Open Cup match against FC Dallas and the remainder of the team, most of whom will probably be in the starting 11 on Monday against Portland on July 4th.

Though he did not take part in training, it was great to see Dillion Serna at training and not on crutches. Serna suffered an injury Wednesday night against FC Dallas and is due to have season ending knew surgery soon. Also great to see Sean St. Ledger and Bobby Burling, who have both been out of action due to injury. Shkelzen Gashi’s back from Albanian National team duties in the Euro 2016 tournament. The only noticeable absentee was Jermaine Jones.


Greenspan returns, Serna to have surgery…

Good news and bad news from the Rapids today.

The good news, 2015 MLS SuperDraft 2nd round pick and US Naval Academy graduate Joseph Greenspan has been reassigned by the US Navy to the Denver area and will be rejoining the Rapids while he is here. Greenspan is reported to be up for selection for Monday’s game against the Timbers.
The bad news is thanks to FC Dallas, Rapids midfielder Dillon Serna will have season ending knee surgery soon and is expected to miss anywhere from 6-8 months.

Welcome back Joseph Greenspan and wishing a speedy recovery to Dillon Serna!
