FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Revolution forward Taylor Twellman is out indefinitely because of problems related to a concussion he sustained in August.
The Revolution said Tuesday that Twellman has been experiencing "ongoing issues" since Aug. 30 when he was hit in the head by Los Angeles Galaxy goalkeeper Steve Cronin. Twellman missed one game, but played in the Revolution's final eight regular-season matches.
The announcement came two days before Thursday's playoff opener against the Chicago Fire at Gillette Stadium, and after captain Steve Ralston broke his leg earlier this month.
Twellman and Ralston were the team's two leading scorers during the regular season. Twellman missed 14 games in 2008 due to injuries.
