Atlanta United wingers Jurgen Damm and Machop Chol and midfielder Mo Adams have returned to training.

Chol has missed most of the season’s games because of a hamstring injury. Chol was signed as a Homegrown player before the season. He played for Atlanta United’s first Under-18 team during the academy’s inaugural 2016-17 season. Chol attended Wake Forest before he signed with the club. He appeared in several of the team’s preseason games, typically as a left winger, and performed well. He has played 24 minutes in league games this season.

Damm suffered a hamstring injury against New England. He has appeared in three games, with one start.

Adams has yet to play this season after undergoing offseason surgery.

Additionally, the team confirmed that Emerson Hyndman will miss the remainder of the MLS season after suffering a torn ACL in his right knee. The injury occurred near the end of a training session and wasn’t the result of contact. The team is waiting for the swelling in his knee to subside before surgery can be scheduled. Hyndman, a central midfielder, has started all seven league games this season.

Atlanta United will host Philadelphia on Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
