Chicago Fire Team Writer Jeff Crandall just broke some damaging news regarding a lengthy stay on the sidelines for Logan Pause. Logan is nursing two broken ribs and pneumothorax after a collision with Bakary Soumare in the Philly game. Jeff states the injury occured in the 25th minute, and Logan toughed it out until the 44th minute when Patrick Nyarko replaced him.
While the injury is no doubt a blow for the Fire, this should open things up for Frank to tinker a bit with the formation and midfield alignment. The defense has been in top form, so I am wondering if we will see Pavel Pardo as a lone defensive midfielder with a more attacking look in mind. We will find out Saturday Night. Here's to a quick, speedy recovery for Logan.
