Toronto FC are going to be without powerhouse Jozy Altidore for an expected 4-5 weeks. The big-man has given a good account of himself since returning to MLS, scoring five goals in eight games.

Altidore was substituted during the game against New England Revolution after straining his hamstring and Toronto now face the possibility of five games without their target man.

Games Altidore could miss: 

– Toronto vs Portland, May 23

– Toronto vs San Jose Earthquakes, May 30

– DC United vs Toronto, June 6 

– Toronto vs New York City, June 20

The US Men’s National Team will also be concerned about Altidore’s injury with the Gold Cup just a couple of months away.
