Michael Bradley has a groin injury and will miss a month, including the US qualifiers against Jamaica.

After just one match with new Serie A side AS Roma, Michael Bradley has sustained a a groin injury and will be out for a month. The midfielder played the full 90+ minutes against Catania on Sunday, notching an assist for the Nicolas Lopez goal that gave Roma the draw, but tweaked his muscle in the process.

The American will not only miss the next few matches in Serie A but, more concerning to the USA men's team, will not be available for the upcoming qualifiers for the World Cup. While Bradley might have bounced around a bit, club-wise, over the last few seasons, he has been a regular for the US, and Jurgen Klinsmann was likely counting on him to remain steady while many other Americans are experiencing turmoil and drama.

As for Roma, they've got just a few more days to strengthen their midfield. Can they bring in someone capable of shoring up the squad in that time?
