Today’s injury report has a lot of changes from late last week, but overall, excepting Preston Burpo‘s status, they’re positive ones for the Revolution.

While Burpo has been downgraded to out as expected and required by the injury he sustained on Saturday night and the subsequent surgery to treat it, Matt Reis has been upgraded from the same distinction for the first time all season. The keeper is listed as doubtful, clearing the way for his return. Reis’s return to New England will bear serious watching in the next few weeks; it’s not unrealistic to think he’ll be suited up against Seattle, though Bobby Shuttleworth will definitely be drawing the start.

Today’s  Revolution injury report is now available to the public.

Edgaras Jankauskas has been upgraded from doubtful to questionable. Jankauskas is starting to be labeled by most as a bust, or at least a disappointment, but the Revs are in desparate need of anybody who can score. Perhaps he’ll help the club put the ball in net for the first time in 5 matches when New England hosts New York this weekend.

The Revs’ updated injury report has been released, and it carries some good news.

Kevin Alston and Cory Gibbs have both been upgraded to probable.  The duo didn’t play in Wednesday night’s 3-0 loss to the New York Red Bulls after having been listed as questionable on Tuesday.  The report indicates that the two defenders should be good to go tomorrow night.

This is good news for a club that has its seen a lot of injuries in its defense in the last week.  Emmanuel Osei (leg infection) and Darrius Barnes (midfoot sprain) are both still listed as out, but on Wednesday the Revolution played only one natural defender (Seth Sinovic) in the absence of Alston and Gibbs.

The Revolution released today’s injury report minutes ago and guess what? It’s grown.

Add Darrius Barnes to the list of hurting Revs.

Already without Taylor Twellman, Matt Reis, Shalrie Joseph, Emmanuel Osei, and Mike Videira, the club will miss Darrius Barnes this week as well.  Barnes suffered a right foot sprain Saturday night against Columbus and was substituted out as a result.

Today’s injury report features a few noteworthy changes from Tuesday’s earlier edition.  The Revolution will take on the Colorado Rapids in Foxborough tomorrow night.

Edgaras Jankauskas and Niko Colaluca, both of whom were listed as questionable on Tuesday, are not listed at all.  Whether these two would play has been the basis of much Revs talk over the last week.  Now we know that they will both be available.  Jankauskas could help the Revs given his prowess as a possession-based player — a place where coach Steve Nicol has said the club needs to improve — and Colaluca will be fired up to face his old team.

As Saturday night’s match against the Colorado Rapids approaches for the Revolution, the status of striker Edgaras Jankauskas, who’s yet to make his season debut, has become one of the game’s bigger subplots.  In this video, he and Nico Colaluca, a former Rapid who is also on the mend, talk about how they’re feeling.

A couple quotes of note:

Is Jankauskas ready to go in 2010?

by Adam Vaccaro

Revs striker Edgaras Jankauskas has been participating heavily in training this week.  On Tuesday, he was listed as a full participant, and on Wednesday, the Lithuanian striker assisted on a nifty play in an 8-on-8 scrimmage.

Through only four matches, it’s tough to really gauge the Revs’ offensive attack.  Five of the club’s six goals come from two players, one of whom has seen very little playing time this season (Kenny Mansally, who scored two against DC United in the match’s second half).  Rookie forward Zack Schiwalski is responsible for three more, all recorded within fourteen minutes of the Revs’ 4-1 victory over Toronto FC.  Aside from the small number of scorers, the season’s sample size at large is still far too small to make any claims.
