Robbie Rogers misses game with leg injury

Galaxy records win as they anticipate a quick return to action for the openly gay winger

The Los Angeles Galaxy were without the services of their new winger Robbie Rogers on Saturday night as Rogers was held out with a hamstring injury. Rogers had appeared in nine consecutive matches for the Galaxy since debuting May 26, a day after he was acquired by the team.

Rogers' career with Leeds United in the UK was hampered by injuries from very early on. He sustained a head injury just 10 minutes into his first game, sidelining him for weeks. In his first start back from the injury, he suffered an ankle injury that ended his season.

The LA Galaxy Insider blog doesn't seem very worried about Rogers' near future on the pitch:

When asked if Rogers is expected to return to training soon, Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena seemed optimistic, stating that "he should be fine."

The Galaxy beat the Vancouver White Caps, 2-1, despite missing Rogers and team leaders Robbie Keane and Landon Donovan. The team is 3-1 this month despite a rather tough schedule. They'll get a test at the Champions Cup in two weeks, facing Real Madrid on Aug. 1.
