Weston McKennie will miss US game vs Trinidad and Tobago because of knee injury

CHICAGO (AP) — Midfielder Weston McKennie will miss the United States’ Copa América qualifier at Trinidad and Tobago on Monday because of a knee injury, another blow to a team already missing Christian Pulisic, Tim Weah and Tyler Adams.

McKennie played the entire match in Thursday’s 3-0 win at Austin, Texas, the first leg of the total-goals series.

The U.S. Soccer Federation said Saturday the 25-year-old McKennie left the team to recuperate from aggravated left knee tendinopathy, a condition in which tissue connecting muscle to a bone becomes inflamed.
