More bad news for the Revs: A setback has ended Taylor Twellman‘s 2010 MLS season and perhaps his Revolution career.

Twellman has not played this season and saw the field only twice in 2009 as he continues to recover from head and neck issues borne of a 2008 collision.

The press release from the Revolution:

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Revolution has placed forward Taylor Twellman on the team’s season-ending injury list with continued health issues stemming from an Aug. 30, 2008, in-game collision with former LA Galaxy goalkeeper Steve Cronin.

The decision to move Twellman to the season-ending list was made after he suffered a setback in his rehabilitation in mid-May. He last participated in a Revolution training session on Tuesday, May 18.

“We’re extremely disappointed for Taylor that this setback has ended his season,” Revolution Vice President of Player Personnel Michael Burns. “He was working hard to return to the field in 2010.”

“My goal from the start of this season was to be back on the field this year,” Twellman said. “I’m very disappointed that this setback has derailed that goal.”

Twellman had mentioned in an interview with RevolutionSoccer.net earlier this season that he planned to return to the field this season. His contract expires at the end of the 2010 campaign, leaving his future both with New England and in soccer at large very much up in the air.

Presently, the striker is providing World Cup coverage for Comcast SportsNet New England.

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 its stars, of course.
