Sporting Kansas City enters tonight’s matchup with Toronto FC at BMO Field with a significant addition to the injury report.

Midfielder Benny Feilhaber, who tallied the team’s first goal of the season in the 2-1 victory over San Jose on March 18, is listed as questionable with a thigh strain. Feilhaber has started Sporting KC’s last 22 regular-season games, and has not missed a game in its entirety since last May.

Several names have come off the injury report since Sporting KC’s last match against the Earthquakes, with Saad Abdul-Salaam, Erik Palmer-Brown and Cameron Iwasa all available for selection after being listed as questionable last time out.

Palmer-Brown played the opening 45 minutes in the Swope Park Rangers’ 1-0 win over Portland Timbers 2 on Wednesday night, contributing to the side’s first shutout of the 2017 USL season. Forward Diego Rubio remains out as he continues rehabilitation from a torn ACL.

Toronto FC received a boost earlier this week when head coach Greg Vanney confirmed that star forward Sebastian Giovinco has recovered from an upper-leg contusion suffered against the Philadelphia Union on March 11.

The lone player on the TFC injury report is Ashtone Morgan who is out for Friday’s game with a foot stress fracture. Morgan underwent surgery for the injury in February.

Kickoff from BMO Field is set for 6:30 p.m. CT on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes, while Sports Radio 810 WHB (English) and La Grande 1340 AM (Spanish) will have the call on the radio.
