D.C. United today announced that defender Conor Shanosky has undergone surgery on his left wrist. Dr. Fine and Dr. Rozmaryn of The Orthopaedic Center in Washington, D.C., performed the surgery to repair a fractured left radius in his wrist. He is expected to miss one week.
D.C. United returned to work today after having the day off yesterday. The Black-and-Red has a bye-week this week but is working hard to resolve some of the issues that lead to a 3-0 loss to the Crew last Saturday. Before training, the coaching staff took the team through a film session, then United headed out to the training fields.
He’s done this move before. He’s packed up his life and come to the Nation’s Capital. He’s found an apartment. He’s settled in. He’s driven down East Capital street. He’s parked in lot 5B. He’s put on that Black-and-Red uniform. RFK was his home. But this time, it’s different.
“The first time I did this move, I didn’t have any responsibility,” recalled D.C. United center back Bobby Boswell. “It was just me.”
United has a week off, but heads up north to battle Toronto on March 22. FULL SCHEDULE

It wasn’t the start anyone wanted, but there is still strong optimism withing D.C. United. With a new squad, we knew it would take more than just preseason for everyone to click, and now the Black-and-Red has two weeks to solve the problems from last night’s match.
“For the most part, the backline was pretty solid,” said Assistant Coach Chad Ashton. Though DCU lost 3-0, the talent level of our back four is evident. There were breakdowns that lead to goals, but, again, it’s a new group with time to work it out.
