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 the team in Columbus this weekend, Talon had an off week from his gameday duties. He took the rare opportunity to surprise a few kids at a party that one of the D.C. United Season Ticket Holders was hosting. The Black-and-Red mascot was a hit among the youthful crowd.
