Raheem Edwards: Soldout Contest and Target Practice

raheem edwards: The U.S. international, healthy again after missing the last three games with a hamstring issue, stayed out for some spirited target practice with teammates Armando Cooper and Raheem Edwards, according to The Chronicle Herald. While Altidore is good to go for Saturday's soldout contest against the visiting New York Red Bulls, fellow striker Sebastian Giovinco will sit out a fourth straight game.
