RSL notes: Schuler out until postseason, Donovan’s farewell and the Quakes

Sandy • Real Salt Lake will be without defender Chris Schuler at least until the club officially enters postseason play, that much coach Jeff Cassar confirmed Friday after training. Schuler suffered a broken nose and three separate fractures in his eye orbital bone in last Sunday’s 1-0 loss at Chivas USA after colliding with teammate Nat Borchers in the first half. The club has sought out several different opinions from several different ...

Cassar tells ESPN700 RSL’s Chris Schuler may need surgery

The collision between Real Salt Lake’s two center backs Sunday afternoon in Southern California could change the landscape of how the club finishes out the remainder of the 2014 season — and potentially beyond into the postseason.

In a surprising move, Nick Rimando, Tony Beltran, Chris Schuler and Ned Grabavoy are all not starting against Vancouver Whitecaps today in a match that, with a win or a draw, would see RSL clinch a playoff spot. Beltran was nursing a back injury sustained in training this week, which presumably answers for his absence. Schuler was substituted at halftime against Colorado Rapids and apparently had a problem with a quad (or some other part of his leg.) Schuler has been rested other times this season, so precaution isn't unprecedented. Grabavoy and Rimando are presumably both absent to get a...
