Atlanta United today announced that midfielder Darlington Nagbe is week-to-week with a low-grade left hamstring strain. He suffered the injury during Atlanta United’s 3-1 win against New York City FC on Sunday. Nagbe played 89 minutes in the win before being replaced by Kevin Kratz. Nagbe had ice on the hamstring after the game but didn’t appear to be walking with a noticeable limp.
As a result of the injury, Nagbe has been removed from the United States’ national team for its two matches in Europe over the coming week during the FIFA international window. The midfielder will remain in Atlanta to rehabilitate.
Nagbe, along with his midfield partner Eric Remedi, lead all Atlanta United players in completed passes Sunday, and no one completed at a higher rate than Nagbe’s 92%. For now, Atlanta fans should actually rest easier hearing the news that Nagbe will not have to make two transatlantic flights in the coming several days.
