The Columbus Crew have had their share of injuries this season.

One of the wounded, include 29-year-old midfielder Daniel Paladini.

Last week, the Crew announced that the Northridge, California native had underwent successful surgery for internal fixation for a tibia and fibula fracture.

Paladini has begun recovery and is out for the remainder of the 2014 MLS season. He will be sidelined a total of 16 weeks.

The injury was suffered during a practice session. The operation was performed by surgeon Dr. Corey L. Van Hoff, M.D. at Ohio Health’s Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus on Tuesday, September 16.

A seasoned MLS veteran, Paladini has also played for the LA Galaxy, Chivas USA and the Chicago Fire.

Being from Northridge, California, he stayed home to play for Cal State-Northridge of the Big West Conference. In 2005, he was named Midfielder of the Year by that conference.

Columbus Crew Notes

The Columbus Crew have only played two games and are 1-1-0.

The team has shown potential and they’v also shown their youth with mistakes on defense.

The 2013 edition of the franchise also has several new players who have made their debuts in the games against Chivas USA and Vancouver.

Six players have made their Major League Soccer and Crew debuts: forward Ryan Finley, defenders Glauber and Tyson Wahl, midfielders Dominic Oduro, Agustin Viana and Matias Sanchez.

Gaven out of action

One of the key players on the Crew team is Eddie Gaven, who suffered an injury recently and was scratched from Saturday’s lineup due to an apparent ankle injury.

Gaven’s a key commodity in the midfield and can’t be out of action on a long-term basis or this team can kiss the season goodbye.

Head coach Robert Warzycha told the media last Saturday in a news release that the 26-year-old Gaven was not going to play at Vancouver due to the turf at BC Place.

Gaven is a fan favorite and has made 200 starts in a Crew uniform.

His status for this weekend’s home opener vs. San Jose Earthquakes has not been determined.

American midfielder Benny Feilhaber, who was born in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, has agreed to a contract with Major League Soccer.

Chivas USA has the first choice to sign the 26-year-old because of itsĀ  position atop the MLS allocation list. Also, Philadelphia and New England can also pick the UCLA graduate.

A member of the 2010 U.S. World Cup team, Feilhaber had been playing for Denmark’s AGF Aarhus since 2008.

Soccer’s hardest working team, The Columbus Crew haven’t been able to handle Chivas USA like they have some of the other members of Major League Soccer, especially when they play in the Los Angeles suburb of Carson, California.

Columbus’ only win over Chivas USA at the Home Depot Center in Carson was in 2005, when the team was in its first year and won only 4 of 32 matches.

The Crew did not win this past weekend, but broke a five-game losing skid at Chivas USA with the 0-0 draw.

The match marked the third straight shutout for the Crew’s defense, which held Chivas USA to six shots.

The Crew is 1-1-2 while Chivas is still winless at 0-2-2 on the season.

Goalkeepers, William Hesmer of Columbus and Adam Kennedy of Chivas were tough to beat and did not crack under any pressure.
