WASHINGTON ? The start of the 2011 season certainly didn?t go as planned for D.C. United defender Jed Zayner.
After enduring and pushing through the rigorous preseason schedule, the sixth-year veteran went down with a hamstring injury in the first game of the season against the Columbus Crew and hasn?t returned since.
His recovery time was then extended when he re-aggravated the injury a few weeks ago. However, Zayner finally returned to full training this week is ready to go if called upon for Friday?s matchup at Houston (8:30 pm ET; Fox Soccer).
