Conor Casey is injured, literally everyone is injured

OK, maybe not literally everyone but it's starting to feel that way. The Rapids today released an article stating that we can throw another body onto the injury pile, Conor Casey hurt his hamstring during the 2-2 draw against Sporting Kansas City.

Casey is just another name to add to the growing list: Anthony Wallace, Jamie Smith, Ross LaBauex, Pablo Mastroeni, Omar Cummings, Marvell Wynne and Brian Mullan are also out due to injury right now as the team starts to falter more and more as the weeks go along. Missing all of their veteran leaders is starting to hurt the team's cohesiveness, and Casey running the offense was just starting to look a bit better as they put some goals on the board against SKC in the second half.

With Casey out, Kamani Hill and Tony Cascio are probably the most likely candidates to get the starts at striker against Montreal. Hopefully, Conor can heal before that.
