The Loss of Thierry Henry

The New York Red Bulls have lost a key player for what could be an extended portion of their season. Thierry Henry fell victim to his own velocity and found himself carried off in pain after suffering a strained hamstring. The star forward was on his way to a spectacular season after just having scored his 9th goal of the year for the New York Red Bulls.

The powerful Frenchman was on a run and fell with none around him, a sure sign the injury was serious. The look on his face told the whole story as he was carried off the field by a trainer and fellow striker Kenny Cooper. The Red Bulls were finally starting to look like the team that many have thought they could be with powerful wins on the season. With big, multi-goal wins against Colorado, Montreal and Columbus, there were signs that the Red Bulls could potentially put together the powerful output that their roster suggests they might.

Henry will be out a full month with the injury. "It's quite a big hamstring [injury], huge one," said Hans Backe in the postgame. "It's a huge loss for us both on and off the pitch."

Now though, questions are raised. After the hamstring injury, the Red Bulls offense will be under heavy pressure to perform. Much of that pressure will fall on the shoulders of Kenny Cooper, who has been in form and combining well with Henry. Juan Agudelo's own injuries have kept him from seeing any time on the field for some time. Questions of whether Arteaga, Angulo or Hertzog can keep up will weigh heavy on Hans Backe's mind.

Other injuries of note for the Red Bulls include Teemo Taino, Stephen Keel, Roy Miller and perhaps most importantly Wilman Conde. Rafa Marquez is serving a suspension as well. The shorthanded Red Bulls will have to find a way to stay afloat while their stars heal if they hope to continue putting out multi-goal wins.
