Tim Weah carried off pitch with worrisome injury right before joining USMNT for Nations League
- Weah carried off with injury
- Occurred in stoppage time of 2-0 win
- USMNT set to face Grenada and El Salvador
WHAT HAPPENED? Weah was forced out in the 94th minute with Lille maintaining a one-goal lead as he was replaced by Samuel Ramet due to an apparent head injury. Lille went on to score again, with Mohamed Bayo netting in the 11th minute of stoppage time to seal the 2-0 victory.
After the match, though, Weah seemed to be in good spirits in a video posted by teammate Jonatham Bamba, with the American holding an ice pack to his head.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The injury comes just days before Weah is set to report to USMNT camp in Orlando ahead of Nations League matches. The injury could leave the U.S. missing yet another World Cup veteran, with Tyler Adams, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Josh Sargent among those missing out.
