I talked to Evans afterward and he said he felt a pop in his right hamstring. He said he's been told it's not too bad, but that he might miss a week or as much as three. He's bummed, obviously, but realizes there's a long season left.
Sigi Schmid seemed pleased by the offense's aggressiveness and by the defense's play, two areas that were lacking in weekend losses to Portland and Vancouver. He praised the forwards for staying high and occupying the central mids of Colorado, and for the defense's job on handling Conor Casey and Omar Cummings, one of the league's premier forward duos.
Schmid thought Evans looked sharp and made several runs before being injured. He did not have any info on Zakuani's right hip injury, though.
