D.C. United's August run just got a little bit tougher as it was announced that defender Chris Korb will miss the next month with a hamstring injury. The story was first reported by Steve Goff of the Washington Post and Pablo Maurer.
Korb, who came back from knee surgery earlier in the season, has been integral to the club's recent success. In thirteen matches this season, Korb has started twelve games and provided two assists. After the club terminated the contract of Christian Fernandez, Korb took over the position and immediately provided support on the wing. While Korb can go forward, he is also a much better defender than Fernandez and was a key contributor to the club's twenty-four goals allowed (fourth-lowest in MLS).
