Loyd, 30, was acquired via the MLS Expansion Draft in the offseason despite concussion concerns. He has reportedly been dealing with groin issues throughout the season. He appeared in one match for Atlanta this season, a U.S. Open Cup match against Charleston Battery.
Rumors of the club adding veteran defender Bobby Boswell have been swirling since Monday night. If he is to be added, this seems like the corresponding roster move that needed to be made. Now we wait and see if that’s actually the case.
