Burling went down in the Open Cup match vs. OKC and needed to be subbed out.

When Bobby Burling went down in a corner kick scrum during the US Open Cup match on Tuesday, it didn’t look good. He limped off to the locker room, yelled a couple expletives, and the Colorado Rapids went down a man for the next minute or so of stoppage time.

Today, the Rapids announced that Burling has been diagnosed with a left foot strain and will be out 4-6 weeks. The team is already struggling with the center back position due to other injuries, so hopefully everyone heals quickly.
