Thierry Henry May Be Sidelined With Achilles Injury

Thierry Henry could be shelved again Saturday when the New York Red Bulls host the San Jose Earthquakes at Red Bull Arena (7:30 p.m., MSG). Henry is suffering from an Achilles injury. and coach Hans Backe admitted "it's a problem."

The 33-year-old French striker already missed one game on the young MLS season with a hamstring injury.

"He has a problem with the Achilles," Backe was quoted by MLSsoccer.com. "It is something that is day by day, week by week with him. It's a problem, definitely.

"We just have to take it day by day, but it's concerning, yes. It's a problem, yes, and he's getting treatment for it. But it's not a question about getting any surgery, so that's good. We'll just have to see if and when he can train this week."

  • The Red Bulls reserves lost to Philadelphia, 2-1, Sunday in the re-launched MLS Reserve League. John Rooney scored for New York.
