Curt Onalfo provides injury updates on Ashley Cole and Gyasi Zardes | INSIDER

CARSON, Calif. – LA Galaxy head coach Curt Onalfo stated that both Ashley Cole and Gyasi Zardes are coming along at a good pace ahead of this week’s match against the Portland Timbers.

Ahead of this weekend’s game with Portland, Onalfo told reporters on Tuesday that Cole is improving from a calf injury that he suffered in the team’s penultimate preseason match last month.

“He’s making good progress. He’s running hard," Onalfo said. "It’s day to day. It’s early in the week, it’s probably too early for this weekend, but he’s making good progress.”

Onalfo echoed his prognosis for Zardes, who remains sidelined with a knee injury and has done limited ball work over the past week.

“Gyasi is the same,” Onalfo said. “He’s coming along at a good pace, and we just have to see where we are.”
