LA Galaxy injury update: Todd Dunivant and Robbie Keane rejoin full training

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Robbie Keane and Todd Dunivant have rejoined the LA Galaxy at training after missing the last two matches due to injury. Dunivant is pushing to go Saturday, while Keane feels that target is unrealistic.

The LA Galaxy got back two players last Saturday from the four who were unable to go two weeks ago at Real Salt Lake. Landon Donovan and Carlo Cudicini rejoined the squad after a youth heavy lineup got three points on the road, but the Galaxy were still missing starters Robbie Keane and Todd Dunivant. Today Keane and Dunivant rejoined the club on the field for full training for the first time since April 20th against Sporting Kansas City.

Keane, who's presence was missed against Houston where the Galaxy found themselves missing an offensive spark, said after practice that a Saturday return not realistic, but that he was hoping to join the club for the Wednesday road match. With the Villarreal and Rugg combination not giving Arena the spark he wanted last weekend, it's likely we could see some shifting of the lineup to put Donovan or Mike Magee up top. Gyasi Zardes is a strong candidate to get the start as well, though he probably won't go more than sixty minutes.

Todd Dunivant wants to go Saturday, which could make possible the shifting that would put Sean Franklin in the midfield with Leonardo starting in the backfield with Omar Gonzalez. It's not an ideal lineup by any means, and there's always the possibility that Arena could go with two youngsters up top again. Really, the possibilities for LA this weekend are many.

The important takeaway is that with Keane and Dunivant training, LA is back to having their full squad available to practice. It's the first time that's happened since the season kicked off, and it's a good omen that the loss Saturday was more a blip than the shape of things to come.

Nope, all of that is wrong because my brain didn't work. Jack McBean.
