Donovan: Galaxy depth can handle potential Wilhelmsson absence

By Adam Serrano

CARSON, Calif. -- The LA Galaxy will likely be without their newest signing Christian Wilhelmsson for Sunday's match against the Colorado Rapids. 

Wilhelmsson is currently listed as questionable for Sunday's match due to a left calf strain that has prevented him from participating in the club's final three training sessions this week. However, with  that is of little concern to Galaxy captain Landon Donovan, who attests that LA can more than handle the Swede's absence

“He looks like he got banged up a little bit, we’ll see,” said Donovan. “We’ve developed a really, really deep team so there’s a lot of guys that can step up if he can’t play.”
