The New York Red Bulls are third in the MLS Eastern Conference of the MLS Standings but lost Thierry Henry to injury.

The New York Red Bulls are third in the Eastern Conference of the MLS Standings with a record of 4-3-1 and 13 points. The Bulls split their games for the week winning at home against the New Egland Revolution 1-0, but falling short in Washington to D.C. United 4-1.

The biggest news of the week was the loss of Thierry Henry to a hamstring injury. Before the injury Henry had a beautiful goal against the Revolution as described by our Red Bulls blog, Once A Metro:

Henry took advantage of the visitors' early defensive troubles, taking down a long ball from Connor Lade, sprinting around Stephen McCarthy and finishing with a beautiful chip over Matt Reis to give New York the one-goal advantage.

The injury to Henry means the Red Bulls Captain will miss 3-4 weeks. Henry has contributed in all but four of New York’s 18 goals.
