The Revolution could be without two starters ahead of Wednesday’s match vs. Portland as left back Chris Tierney and midfielder/forward Teal Bunbury were both listed on the squad’s latest injury report.

Tierney, who exited Saturday’s match with a leg injury, is listed as out due to a left hamstring strain. Bunbury, who went 79 minutes on Saturday, is listed as questionable due to a left hamstring strain.

Veteran fullback Je-Vaughn Watson, who filled in for Tierney following his injury, could see more time at left back on Wednesday. Another possibility for Tierney’s spot is versatile defender Darrius Barnes, who has seen time on both flanks during his career.

If Bunbury is unable to go on Wednesday, finding a replacement could be somewhat trickier. Bunbury has been the starting striker in the squad’s last three games, and with forwards Charlie Davies and Juan Agudelo both limited by injuries as of late, rookie Femi Hollinger-Janzen could be tabbed to fill the spot.

Meanwhile, Agudelo remains questionable for the fourth straight game due to a right hamstring strain while midfielder Steve Neumann is listed as out for the third straight game due to a right knee sprain.
