Jones, a striker, suffered a knee injury Tuesday while on national-team duty with Trinidad and Tobago. His right knee was wrapped at practice Friday. Martino said the team is waiting for the swelling in Jones’ knee to decrease before a next step is taken. Jones has 12 appearances this season, including four starts, and has scored two goals.
Jones is the second Atlanta United player to suffer an injury while playing with their national team. Josef Martinez suffered a thigh injury with Venezuela in late March from which he has only recently returned.
Peterson, a midfielder out since the season’s fourth game because of an ankle injury, recently received what Martino described as a special treatment that required 5-6 days of complete rest. He has resumed individual training, but is not yet on the field with the team.
