Toronto FC striker Jozy Altidore ready for action after injury absence

TORONTO — Striker Jozy Altidore should be available for Toronto FC on Sunday against Sporting Kansas City.

The U.S. international missed Toronto's first two games of the MLS season with a minor hamstring issue. TFC hasn't missed a beat, defeating the New York Red Bulls and tying New York City FC.

Star striker Sebastian Giovinco has been involved in all of Toronto's scoring with two goals and two assists.

Kansas City is unbeaten with wins over Seattle and Vancouver.

The game at Children's Mercy Park is Toronto's third straight on the road. There are five more away games before Toronto returns to BMO Field, which is being renovated.

Toronto winger Daniel Lovitz is still going through concussion protocol. Defender Drew Moor missed training Friday due to illness but it is not serious.
