In the thick of the dog days, the injury bug bit NYCFC but bad. While Patrick Vieira’s team isn’t totally out of the woods — are you ready for L.A. next week?? — Khiry Shelton is back to a clean bill of health for the first time since April, and Rodney Wallace has been upgraded to questionable.
That should be enough to get the job done this evening.

New York City:
