Dwayne De Rosario gets 2-game penalty

WASHINGTON -- D.C. United forward Dwayne De Rosario has been suspended for two regular-season games by MLS for violent conduct in a preseason game.

The league announced Friday that De Rosario also has been fined an undisclosed amount for the head-butt foul on Philadelphia Union midfielder Danny Cruz in the 60th minute of the preseason match on Feb. 23. De Rosario was issued a red card for the foul.

The MLS Players Union appealed the decision on behalf of De Rosario. MLS Commissioner Don Garber heard the appeal Thursday and upheld the suspension.

The 2011 league MVP will miss United's season opener against the Houston Dynamo on Saturday and the March 9 match against Real Salt Lake.
