Drogba may be used off the bench Wednesday against NYC FC, as Montreal are playing three games in eight days, the < a href="http://montrealgazette.com/sports/soccer/mls/montreal-impact/nyc-match-a-chance-to-test-our-depth-impact-coach-biello-says">Montreal Gazette reports.

Drogba dealt with knee swelling earlier this season, which kept him from playing on artificial turf, and given the condensed schedule, it's unsurprising that the team could limit his minutes. If he does not start, Dominic Oduro could lead the line.

Drogba scored within six minutes of being introduced at the start of the second half, as Montreal defeated Chicago by a score of 2-1. The Ivorian finished with three shots in 40 minutes.

This was the 38-year-old's first goal of the season, as he has just been limited to just two substitute appearances thus far. Despite this fact, Montreal find themselves atop the Eastern Conference.

Drogba is expected to play Saturday against the Fire, Goal.com reports.

Drogba, who missed five of Montreal's first six games of the season while rehabbing a long-standing knee injury, looks set to rejoin an Impact club that went 3-2 in his absence and is currently led in scoring by midfielder Ignacio Piatti.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Drogba is not in the 18-man squad to face Columbus on Saturday, as the game is on artificial turf in Olympic Stadium.

Drogba has been dealing with swelling in his knee for the past few weeks and decided he wouldn't play on turf, as it could only prolong his recovery. On the plus side, he should be available for next weekend's match against Chicago.

Drogba (knee) is available off the bench Saturday at FC Dallas.

Drogba has not played yet this season due to the Impact's first games coming on turf, and while he's available to play on the grass in Dallas, he could miss the next two games, which are back on turf. It's a tough start for Drogba, though the Impact mostly play on grass for the rest of the season, which should allow Drogba to get plenty of playing time, as long as he stays fit.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

The Montreal Impact will add Drogba to the fold when they travel to face FC Dallas on Saturday, Goal.com reports.

Montreal coach Mauro Biello confirmed Tuesday that Drogba, who has been training with the USL's Sacramento Republic while recovering from a knee injury, will join the Impact in Dallas on Thursday after sitting out the first two matches of 2016 because the games were played on artificial turf. The 38-year-old former Chelsea striker scored 12 goals in 14 appearances last season after joining Montreal in August, aiding in the Impact's run to the Eastern Conference semifinals. He is expected to skip the club's early April outings with Seattle and Columbus due to those contests being played on artificial surfaces as well, but should only strengthen an Impact squad with the best record in MLS through two games Saturday versus Dallas.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Drogba (knee) will train with Sacramento Republic FC with the goal of being available to play March 19 against FC Dallas.

Drogba is not training or playing matches on turf due to knee swelling, so he is expected to miss four of the Impact's first five games, allowing Dominic Oduro to start in his place.
