One of the Philadelphia Union's breakout young stars will be out for less than a month with a torn labrum.
The Philadelphia Union's Josh Yaro will miss two to three weeks with a torn labrum, the club revealed via press release this afternoon. The injury does not require surgery, and with the Copa América giving the Union off until the 18th, it's not expected that Yaro will miss many MLS matches, although he'll certainly miss the club's entrance into the U.
We look back at what went right and what (if anything) went wrong for the Union in May of 2016
What. A. Month.
The Philadelphia Union end May at the top of the Eastern Conference and have a seven game unbeaten streak - the second longest unbeaten streak in the Union's history. Should the Union win or draw their next game, they will tie their club record set in 2011, which coincidentally was the only year the Union have made the playoffs.
Carroll's goal on Saturday may be the one that, years down the line, we look back at and say, "This was the moment when everyone realized that Philadelphia Union had become the team its fans had awaited for years."
