LA Galaxy keeper Brian Rowe out 6-8 weeks with groin pull

Expect Jon Kempin to start vs. D.C. United

MLS: Los Angeles Galaxy at San Jose Earthquakes Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

The Galaxy just can’t seem to shake the injury bug so far this season.

Galaxy Insider Adam Serrano has just reported that starting goalkeeper Brian Rowe will miss six to eight weeks after suffering a groin pull in training this week.

Rowe has made seven starts this season for the Galaxy in MLS play, recording 17 saves while earning a 3-2-2 record in net. All time, the goalkeeper has made 51 starts in his MLS career with LA.

The LA Galaxy will face Eastern Conference side D.C. United this Saturday, June 3, at 4 p.m. PT on the road at RFK Stadium live on Spectrum SportsNet and Spectrum Deportes. The Galaxy will then have a bye week before returning to StubHub Center for a game on Saturday, June 17 vs. the Houston Dynamo at 8 p.m. PT.

This is a major loss for LA. Rowe was at the top of his game, and his steady presence in goal brought stability to the Galaxy backline. An underrated highlight of LA’s victory over San Jose was Rowe’s incredible reflex save to deny Marco Urena late.

Rowe will be missed.
