JAY DEMERIT (WATFORD)

The News: A strained calf muscle has ruled Jay DeMerit out of action with Watford for the next month.

Of Note: DeMerit was stretchered off the field during Saturday’s loss to West Brom and immediately substituted. At first the extent of his injury was unknown, but after tests on DeMerit’s leg, it was revealed that he will be unfit to play for around a month. The confirmation of the injury means that DeMerit is unlikely to participate in the U.S. team’s trip to Johannesburg to face South Africa later this month.

Up Next: Rest and rehab for DeMerit, who will look to return to the field in December prior to Watford’s busy holiday schedule. In regards to the South Africa trip, stay tuned to ussoccer.com, as later this week we’ll be releasing the full roster for the November 17 friendly.

Good luck with that healing process, Jay. We want to see you in the U.S. uniform again ASAP! And I'd like to see Watford in the Premiereship again too. Also, can't wait for the roster announcement.
