Vancouver Whitecaps midfielder, Nigel Reo-Coker could miss his team's match against Houston Dynamo after suffering a bizarre injury walking around Vancouver.
Reo-Coker, who joined the team in 2013, fell over a bike-rack whilst taking a stroll in his adopted city. He suffered cuts to his face, but assistant coach Martyn Pert is unsure of his status for the weekend's clash.
“That’s unsure at the moment,” Pert told reporters. “He’s had a scrape on his face and the medics will assess whether he has a concussion."
The English midfielder has recorded one assist in three games during this current MLS regular-season but could now face a spell on the sidelines.
The Whitecaps are undefeated so far this year after with two draws against Chivas USA and New England following a victory against New York Red Bulls in the season opener.
Reo-Coker has experience of playing in the English Premier League with West Ham, Aston Villa and Bolton Wanderers. He also played 23 times for the England Under-21s.
He joined Vancouver in February 2013 after the Whitecaps had given the Portland Timbers two draft-picks for the right to sign him.
