Updates on Aigner, Blomberg, Hairston, Ford, Gashi, Boateng

John A. Babiak - @Photog_JohnB

After Sunday’s game, the players had off on Monday and have off tomorrow, so today wasn’t a super intense practice. It also got cut short due to lightning in the distance, but I was able to observe for about an hour or so.

Stefan Aigner

Aigner ran around one of the other practice fields a few times and then was doing some laps inside the Rapids practice field but didn’t participate in any drills or anything. He seems to be out at practice every day.

Johan Blomberg

Blomberg wasn’t there today and there were no details about his injury in the roster notes on Sunday.

Marlon Hairston and Kortne Ford

Both Hairston and Ford walked out to practice after warm-ups. They didn’t get to do much before heading back into the locker room due to the lightning. It seems as thought they are both getting closer to returning to the pitch.

Shkelzen Gashi

After Sunday’s game, Anthony Hudson said that Gashi came out because of a groin issue. Today, he was sitting on the sideline and talking to a trainer.

Nana Boateng

He was not out at practice today. After coming out of the game last weekend, Boateng was sitting on the bench on the sideline and then I saw him carrying his baby and walking out. Nana is currently under concussion protocol with no timeline for his return.

Sam Hamilton and Niki Jackson

Even though Hamilton and Jackson are on loan to the Colorado Springs Switchbacks, they were both at practice today. This likely means that they are on the bubble of the 18 and the club wants to keep them close.

Any player not mentioned was fully practicing.
