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.

Tonight marks — aside from Cinco de Mayo — the finale of the Revolution’s three game homestand and the club’s second of eight matches in the month of May.  The Revolution will again be without captain Shalrie Joseph, and will be missing some of the depth that could conceivably be helping in his void as well.  Some thoughts with the match set to start at 7:30 at Gillette Stadium:

-With Joseph Niouky suspended due to the red card he drew on Saturday night against FC Dallas, Mike Videira would have been a solid guy to play in his spot (some observers would argue that he’d be a better fit regardless, but I digress).  Videira, though, will not participate in tonight’s match either; he is listed as out with an ankle injury.  I’m expecting that we’ll see Marko Perovic slide over to that spot instead, and that Chris Tierney will take back the left wing spot he filled earlier in the season.  Then again, with Kevin Alston questionable due to an illness, we may see coach Steve Nicol go with something in the 3-5-2 vein.  “We have no choice,” Nicol told MLSsoccer.com‘s Kyle McCarthy. “We’ve got to be creative. We’ll just sort ourselves out.”
