Players at heart of Toronto Fc defence may have to sit out another week

TORONTO - Toronto FC's injury problems at the heart of its defence may be a factor again this week.Veteran centre backs Steven Caldwell and Damien Perquis, who did not play in Sunday's 2-1 loss at Real Salt Lake, are both questionable for Saturday's game in Chicago.Coach Greg Vanney had hoped Perquis would be ready for Salt Lake. But the team eventually decided not to risk the Polish international.The two centre backs are dealing with calf problems and Vanney says both are questionable this weekend.With a bye after the Chicago game, there is added incentive not to push the two defenders back into action too quickly. The weekend loss dropped Toronto's MLS record to 1-2-0.
