Josh Wicks out 4-6 weeks


The team got some bad news today when it learned that goalkeeper Josh Wicks will be out 4-6 weeks after suffering a dislocated shoulder and MCL sprain in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the San Jose Earthquakes. Wicks' injuries came on the same play in the second half. 

The injury to Wicks leaves United with one active goalkeeper in Milos Kocic. Recently-signed Bill Hamid is not eligible for MLS matches, but can play in Champions League games. Due to the situation, the club will call-up a League pool goalkeeper beginning this weekend versus Chivas USA. 

This season, Kocic has played in three League games (two starts), compiling a record of 1-1-1 and a goals-against average of 2.11. In all competitions (Open Cup, Champions League), his numbers are as follows:

  • Ten games played (eight starts)
  • 6-2-1 record
  • 779 minutes played
  • 10 goals against
  • 1.15 goals-against average
  • 3 shutouts


Here's the play on which Wicks was injured:
