Injury Update: Rob Valentino questionable for Antigua trip
Hamstring pull may keep Valentino out of Antigua seriesOrlando City has used four different lineups in five games this season, but the one consistency has been the pairing of Rob Valentino and Kyle Davies at center back. Many of the fans were surprised when the lineup was announced Saturday night, and Valentino wasn't named. He wasn't even in the 18. Now we know why.
Late in the week, Valentino experienced a hamstring pull during training. After giving it a go during early warm-ups, the decision was made to hold Valentino out against Pittsburgh. His presence was missed, as the Lions gave up two goals in the final 15 minutes to make the match very interesting. City rebounded for a thrilling victory, but the question remains. When will Rob be back?
Fret not, because Valentino's injury is not serious. He participated in portions of training today, and will be evaluated as the week progresses. While his status is officially "Questionable", there's still a strong chance that Valentino will be ready for this weekend's trip to Antigua.
