The Revolution look quite healthy heading into tomorrow night’s match against Seattle Sounders FC.

In particular, the backline seems to have some much needed fresh bodies available.

Having played the last few weeks with makeshift center backs in light of injuries to Darrius Barnes and Emmanuel Osei, and having used two players out of position last weekend when Cory Gibbs joined them on the bench, it will be a relief for many to see that these bodies are becoming much more able. Barnes remains listed on the injury report as out, but Osei is no longer listed at all and Gibbs has been upgraded to probable from questionable. Kevin Alston, who did not miss time, was listed as probable earlier in the week. He is no longer listed.

Lineup implications after the jump.

Following Preston Burpo‘s suffering a season-ending leg injury Saturday night, Bobby Shuttleworth was forced suddenly into action against Red Bull New York. For the 23-year-old, the match marked his MLS debut. Shuttleworth had started the Revs’ US Open Qualifying match two and a half weeks earlier, which they lost 3-0 to the same Red Bull club, but had never seen the field in league play.

Shuttleworth would record the win while making the saves he was supposed to make over the match’s final 50+ minutes. While New England eagerly anticipates Matt Reis‘s return from offseason surgery, in the absence of both he and Burpo, Shuttleworth will be drawing at least one start as he’ll be in net this Saturday night against Seattle.

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.

With Preston Burpo's season all but over, Matt Reis's return becomes a focal point.

by Adam Vaccaro

Just moments before Preston Burpo suffered what’s been termed by the Revolution as a lower leg fracture while aggressively defending his net from New York’s Dane Richards, the Revolution’s broadcast booth was gushing with praise for the keeper.

“To me, he’s the MVP so far,” said color analyst Jay Heaps.

Heaps and Brad Feldman supplemented their praise with speculation. Burpo, acquired alongside Cory Gibbs over the winter in a trade with the Colorado Rapids, was brought on-board to fill in while the New England’s long-time star keeper Matt Reis recovered from two offseason surgeries.

Joseph, Reis (in the picture), and Twellman (not - hello, double entendre) have combined to play in one match this season.

Where is the New England Revolution’s money tied up?

With it stars, of course.

Credit to poster REV IT UP over at BigSoccer.com‘s Revs’ forum for these numbers:

Between Shalrie Joseph ($450,000 a year), Taylor Twellman ($395,000), and Matt Reis ($173,344), the Revolution have invested $1,018,344 for 2010.

This accounts for 39.94% of the 2010 salary cap ($2.55 million).

This season, between the three, one game has been played.
