Columbus Crew’s Kei Kamara (leg) questionable for Sunday’s MLS Cup

Saturday December 5th, 2015

Columbus Crew forward Kei Kamara sustained a right leg injury in practice on Saturday and will be a game-time decision for Sunday's MLS Cup against the Portland Timbers, the team announced.

The 31-year-old went down during training and was able to walk off under his own power after jumping and landing awkwardly.

"I haven’t had a chance to assess it yet," coach Gregg Berhalter told reporters. "So I’m going to go in the locker room and figure out what happened and figure out what the treatment is and if he is going to be available. My guess right now is that he’d be available."

Forward Jack McInerney​ would likely fill in should Kamara, who leads the team with 25 goals, miss the match.

Columbus and Portland are set to start at 4 p.m. ET.
