The Italy international limped off just before halftime of the Reds' trip to face the Philadelphia Union.

Sebastian Giovinco exited Toronto FC's 2-2 draw with the Philadelphia Union on Saturday with a leg injury after absorbing a rough tackle from Oguchi Onyewu.

The Italy international limped off the field in first-half stoppage time at Talen Energy Stadium, with Tosaint Ricketts replacing him up top. Giovinco appeared to be favoring his right quad and the team later announced he had suffered a leg contusion.

Jozy Altidore drew a penalty on the subsequent free kick, and the U.S. striker converted to make it 1-1 after Jay Simpson's 11th-minute opener for Philadelphia. Justin Morrow then gave the visitors 71st-minute lead before C.J. Sapong equalized two minutes later.
