RJ DEMELLO - Monday, July 15, 2013
New England Revolution defender Kevin Alston has been removed from the team's disabled list and will travel to Colorado for the Revolution's match against the Rapids on Wednesday.
Alston started the first four games of the 2013 season before being diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia, a rare but treatable form of the disease. The defender missed 14 of New England's games after immediately entering treatment. He will now be looking to help the Revolution which currently sits in sixth place in the Eastern Conference with 24 points. It trails fifth place Houston by five points for the final playoff spot in the East.
The Indiana University product had recently returned to practice after completion of his regimen and will now look to add to his total of 116 starts in Major League Soccer.
