Cummings and Marshall may skip the Gold Cup

HOUSTON - MAY 04: Midfielder Jamie Smith #20 of the Colorado Rapids celebrates his goal with Tyrone Marshall #34 and Wells Thompson #15 against the Houston Dynamo in the second half on a shot from 45 yards away that slipped behind goalkeeper Tally Hall #1 of the Houston Dynamo at Robertson Stadium on May 4, 2011 in Houston, Texas.

The only two players that were taken off the Rapids for Gold Cup participation were Omar Cummings and Tyrone Marshall, both Jamaican internationals. In a bit of a twist move, Omar Cummings has officially said he will remain with the Colorado Rapids during at least the first stage of the Cup unless his native Jamaica makes it to the knock-out stage.

Tyrone Marshall has said he will consider staying with the Rapids as well. With the injury problems still shredding the team this is a very good development for the club and a class move to stay with the club by both of the guys, even in a month where the Rapids only play four games.

Omar Cummings was injured against Houston on May 4th and should be healed up at least enough to be on the bench this weekend against the Philadelphia Union after a two to four week healing period was required. Omar currently has two goals on the year in his few starts. Tyrone Marshall is healthy and most recently played the full 90 minutes against Sporting Kansas City last Saturday. The 36 year old has played surprisingly well this season as a back-up center back option.
