Rapids Defender Kortne Ford suspended for one game

New, 20 comments

Ford will be out this weekend in Orlando.

MLS: Colorado Rapids at Minnesota United FC Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

We can add Kortne Ford to the list of players who will be missing the next game.

After the Disciplinary Committee reviewed Ford’s foul from the 9th minute of the game vs. Minnesota United, they’ve handed down a one-game suspension and an undisclosed fine to the rookie. The foul was called in the game, but no card was issued.

After watching the replay, you can see that Ford makes no real play on the ball and gives Christian Ramirez an elbow to the back.

As far as replacing Ford in the upcoming match vs. Orlando City, Jared Watts will be back, but will he pair up with Bobby Burling or will we see Mike da Fonte make his MLS debut?
