Kansas City’s Bunbury out 4-to-6 weeks

Sporting Kansas City forward Teal Bunbury will be sidelined

four-to-six weeks because of a dislocated right elbow, an injury

that could cause him to miss the team’s Major League Soccer

opener.

Team spokesman Dave Borchardt said the new estimate was made

after Bunbury met Friday with team doctors in Kansas City. After

the 20-year-old forward was hurt Tuesday during a preseason

exhibition in Phoenix, the team said he would be sidelined

two-to-four weeks.

Bunbury made his U.S. national team debut in November. He was

eligible to play for both the U.S. and Canada. His father, Alex,

scored 16 goals for Canada.

Kansas City opens its MLS schedule at Chivas USA on March

19.
