Coach Bruce Arena confirmed that De Jong will be suspended for the game against Houston on Friday.

De Jong is expected to be suspended for his dangerous tackle on the Timbers' Darlington Nagbe during Sunday's match, according to Grant Wahl of Sports Illustrated.

De Jong was given a yellow card for the incident, which was very surprising given the severity of the tackle and the fact that Nagbe had to be stretchered off the pitch. The length of De Jong's suspension is unclear, though it looks likely to be more than just one game.

De Jong signed with the Galaxy on Saturday on a free transfer from AC Milan, the Los Angeles Times reports.

De Jong was released from the final two-and-a-half years of his contract with the Italian giants, allowing him to sign a one-year deal with Los Angeles for a non-DP spot, though it is believed the club used target allocation money.
