Scary moment at end of Columbus Crew's last pre-MLS Cup practice, as star striker Kei Kamara goes down with apparent right leg injury.— Doug McIntyre (@DougMacESPN) December 5, 2015
#CrewSC manager Gregg Berhalter says forward Kei Kamara walked off field under own power but said he didn't see incident where Kei went down— Jeff Carlisle (@JeffreyCarlisle) December 5, 2015
The team was mum on the extent of the injury as Berhalter and many of the team didn't see what happened and couldn't comment before he's fully evaluated.
Kamara lead the team with 25 goals in the regular season and playoffs. Kamara made 31 starts, only missing two games, including the season finale due to suspension. Jack McInerney would be in line to replace him. McInerney scored twice in five games after coming over from the Impact. He had six goals in 22 games overall this year.
Massive Report's Sam Fahmi was onsite for training at the stadium and will have more details later.
