Pontius, DeLeon upgraded, Townsend in the 18

By Rebecca Payne

Ahead of a rare weekday matchup, D.C. United's lingering injuries are starting to clear up, but that hasn't kept Casey Townsend from impressing. Nick DeLeon, who suffered a hamstring strain against the Columbus Crew on March 23 has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against the Dynamo. After being set back a few weeks with a groin strain, Chris Pontius has also been upgraded to questionable. 

With a handful of injuries so far this season, D.C. United has been drawing deep into the roster and recently brought Townsend back from Richmond where he was on loan with the Kickers. Through three matches at the Kickers, Townsend tallied two goals and is tied in the leaderboard for goals scored. After training today Ben Olsen confirmed that Townsend would be in the 18 on Wednesday.
