Zayner back in training, eyes full return for DC

Defender expected to bring experience, stability to back line
Zayer returns for DC

WASHINGTON – The start of the 2011 season certainly didn’t go as planned for D.C. United defender Jed Zayner.

After enduring and pushing through the rigorous preseason schedule, the sixth-year veteran went down with a hamstring injury in the first game of the season against the Columbus Crew and hasn’t returned since.

His recovery time was then extended when he re-aggravated the injury a few weeks ago. However, Zayner finally returned to full training this week is ready to go if called upon for Friday’s matchup at Houston (8:30 pm ET; Fox Soccer).

Miscues doom DC's run of participation in USOC

United's furious fight-back not enough as they bow to NE in quals
Miscues end DC's Cup run

BOYDS, Md. – For the first time since 2002, D.C. United won’t be playing in the US Open Cup.

Tuesday night’s 3-2 loss to the Revolution saw United knocked out in the qualifying phase of the competition, as a trio of defensive miscues went punished by New England. DC fell behind 3-0, and a furious second-half rally came up just short.

This despite controlling play for most of the first half and controlling possession. However, New England made their chances count, punishing three defensive lapses to come away with the win.
