Bruce Arena said during a radio interview on SiriusXM FC that Landon Donovan's injury is a bone bruise, and that he'll likely be available for either the Galaxy's match against San Jose or Seattle. Donovan smashed into the pitch at The Home Depot Center, leaving a divot where his left knee hit turf.

Arena told Nick Green at The Daily Breeze this morning that Donovan wasn't yet resuming full training, instead working out in the gym. Arena didn't say anything specific at that time, and it's likely an official word won't be given until Tuesday's updated injury report.

Elsewhere on the injury front, Green also reported that Todd Dunivant returned to practice this morning, battling through a hip pointer. Robbie Keane is slated to start tomorrow against the Faroe Islands for his Eire squad. The Galaxy will need all these players if they're going to move up in MLS playoff seeding.

We'll know tomorrow when the official MLS injury update is released, however keep in mind Todd Dunivant wasn't listed in the Friday injury report before missing the Galaxy's match against Real Salt Lake.
