U.S. forward Brian Ching will be sidelined for at least several weeks after hurting his left hamstring playing for Major League Soccer's Houston Dynamo, an injury that could hamper his preparations for the World Cup.
Dynamo spokesman Lester Gretsch said Ching was re-evaluated by team doctors Friday, but no MRI was taken because of the Good Friday holiday. He says Ching will be out at least several weeks but the projected length of the layoff won't be known until early next week.
Ching was substituted in the Dynamo's home opener against Real Salt Lake on Thursday night because of the strain. The U.S. team will gather in mid-May ahead of its World Cup opener against England on June 12.
