De Jong returned to training for the Galaxy and could play in Sunday's match against San Jose, according to manager Bruce Arena.

It hasn't been the best season for De Jong. Before injuring his knee, he was suspended for three matches. Nevertheless, De Jong isn't much of a fantasy option in his defensive midfield role. Most of the scoring on the Galaxy is left to the forwards or Steven Gerrard.
