Dynamo center back Jermaine Taylor, one of the team's most important players over the last two years, suffered a left shoulder injury in the eighth minute Saturday night against the New England Revolution.
Taylor suffered the injury after colliding with New England forward Dimitry Imbongo on a clean 50-50 challenge.
Dynamo midfielder Brad Davis and goalkeeper Tally Hall were named to the U.S. men's national team roster by head coach Jurgen Klinsmann for upcoming World Cup qualifiers, U.S. Soccer announced today.
Davis will join the national team camp in Cleveland, Ohio on May 27 following Houston's game at Sporting Kansas City on May 26 and be with the team for its friendly against Belgium on May 29.
Forward Giles Barnes, who was tied for the team lead with four goals, was out with a right hamstring strain he suffered Wednesday night against D.C. United.
With Barnes unavailable, veteran Brian Ching and rookie Jason Johnson were the only other healthy true forwards available to pair with co-scoring leader Will Bruin.
Dynamo forward Will Bruin continued his mastery of D.C. United, turning the rematch of the 2012 Eastern Conference final into a laugher Wednesday night at RFK Stadium.
Bruin scored a pair of goals and provided two assists in a 4-0 victory, keeping the Dynamo (6-2-2, 20 points) atop the Eastern Conference standings.

Some would argue that Robbie Keane might have made a huge difference Sunday night for the Los Angeles Galaxy, but keep in mind that the Dynamo were without captain and team MVP Brad Davis in the 1-0 victory in the rematch of the last two MLS Cup finals.

CARSON, Calif. The Dynamo created a four-way tie for first place in Major League Soccer's Eastern Conference by beating the Los Angeles Galaxy, 1-0, Sunday night at the Home Depot Center.
The Dynamo (5-2-2) now shares first place with the New York Red Bulls, Montreal Impact and Sporting Kansas City after extending its unbeaten streak to four games.
I spent part of my afternoon talking about soccer with a person I respect tremendously in U.S. Soccer's communications department.
I already began lobbying to have U.S. national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann visit the Houston Chronicle sports department and have an intimate lunch with me and a few top Chronicle sports department folks.
Thanks to multiple blows from Colorado's Atiba Harris, the back of Bobby Boswell's head was throbbing and his right cheek had a huge bruise.
Harris head-butted Boswell during a corner kick shortly before Giles Barnes scored the tying goal in the 66th minute. Harris hit Boswell in the back of the head with his arm later in the second half.
Brad Davis, who curled in the winning goal in the Dynamo's 2-1 win over Chicago on Sunday, was named the MLS Player of the Week.
Davis also assisted on the Dynamo's first goal.
"I was not shooting," Davis said of the winning goal. Instead he was attempting to cross the ball from the right wing.
For Dominic Kinnear, it's not very hard to explain why the Dynamo have an MLS record 35-game home unbeaten streak.
"To go unbeaten for this amount of time it's also very impressive," Kinnear said. "People say, ‘what's the secret?' We have a good team. I think if you look at our record in the past, you don't want to explain it to everybody, but I think we've always had a good team.

Dynamo coach Dominic Kinnear is one of the greatest coaches in MLS history because he keeps the focus on winning championships.
Although Dynamo captain Brad Davis was the only U.S. national team player who didn't suit up for the memorable victory in snowy conditions last Friday against Costa Rica, he's patiently waiting his turn.
"For me just being a fan of U.S. Soccer for so long, my name being out of the loop and now coming back into it, it is an extreme honor," he said.
