Javier Morales missed Real Salt Lake’s training session today because of strep throat and coach Jason Kreis suggested that it’s unlikely Morales will play this Saturday against visiting Toronto FC.
RSL had hoped to have its dynamic midfielder back in the starting 11 after a groin injury had kept him out of the starting line-up the past two weeks. That seems unlikely at this point.
Fabian Espindola will also likely be out this weekend with the ankle sprain he suffered on Tuesday. He did not practice on Thursday as RSL shifted its training to the University of Utah indoor facility today.
