Yedlin, who plays for Championship side Newcastle United, was unavailable for his club's match against Reading on Monday.

And after the game, Newcastle coach Rafa Benitez provided an update on Yedlin.

“Yedlin didn’t realize he had the problem against Brighton," Benitez told reporters. "We protected him against Huddersfield, but he had to come on.

“But he was complaining, and you could see that maybe it would be one week or two weeks. He had a knock, maybe has a small tear.”

It's unclear if Yedlin will miss two important World Cup qualifiers later this month, with the U.S. national team set to meet Honduras on March 24 and Panama four days later.
