Atlanta United fullback Andrew Gutman’s playing status will be evaluated on a weekly basis after suffering an adductor injury in the first half of last week’s 6-1 loss at Columbus.
The team doesn’t expect Gutman to miss more than 3-4 games, but he will be evaluated before Atlanta United (3-1-1) hosts the New York Red Bulls on Saturday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Gutman started Atlanta United’s first four games and has one assist.
Gutman’s injury may result in either Caleb Wiley moving from left wing, where he’s scored three goals with two assists, to left fullback, or keeping Wiley at wing and inserting Ronald Hernandez or Brooks Lennon in at left fullback.
