Bradley is expected to be sidelined for 7-to-10 days because of a calf injury.

Bradley had already been ruled out of Wednesday's All-Star Game, and he will now at least miss Toronto's match against New England on Saturday, as well as next Wednesday's match against Orlando City. Given the quick turnaround, he could also miss their game Aug. 8 against Sporting KC, which means his next shot to play would come Aug. 15 against the Red Bulls.

Bradley will not play in the All-Star Game because of a calf injury, and he is questionable to play Saturday against New England, according to John Molinaro of Sportsnet.

Bradley competed with the US Men's National Team at the Gold Cup and was slated to make his return Saturday. He will undergo a scan to determine the severity of the injury, but there didn't seem to be any issues while he was on international duty.

Bradley scored a goal and assisted on another during Toronto's 3-1 win over Montreal on Wednesday.

Bradley, who returned last weekend after being away on international duty, now has two goals and three assists in his last five starts, a much more productive output than earlier this season. His pass to set up Jozy Altidore's goal will be a popular highlight, and his connection with Sebastian Giovinco, who assisted on Bradley's goal, is spot on right now. Unfortunately for fantasy players, Bradley and Altidore will be leaving for the Gold Cup shortly, which could keep them away from MLS for nearly all of July.

Bradley will leave Toronto FC following Saturday's game against D.C. United to join the U.S. Men's National Team in preparation for the Gold Cup, Kurtis Larson of the Toronto Sun reports.

Bradley leaves a big hole to fill for Toronto while he competes in the Gold Cup for the majority of July. In his stead, Collen Warner could be in store for added opportunities over the next month or so.

Bradley rejoined first-team training Tuesday after playing two international friendlies for the U.S. Men's National Team, and he is fully expected to play Saturday against New York City FC.

Bradley was playing a more advanced role before leaving for the USMNT, but with Jozy Altidore now back at full strength, it's unclear if the former will return to play his more defensive role. Before leaving for international duty, Bradley had one goal and two assists in three games.

Bradley will not play Saturday against D.C. United, as he was called up to play for the US Men's National Team for friendlies against Germany and the Netherlands.

Bradley has been coming on of late for fantasy owners, as he's playing a more attacking role while Jozy Altidore is out with a hamstring injury. However, his fine fantasy MLS play will be put on hold, and he'll be back June 20 against New York City FC.

Bradley was in the starting XI but came off after 61 minutes in his return to Toronto FC following his time at the World Cup. Toronto went on to lose the match 2-1 to DC United.

Despite plenty of negative reactions to a few scattered plays, Bradley was a solid contributor for the US in Brazil and he will continue to be a vital cog of the US Mens National Team and Toronto FC.

Bradley underwent surgery this week to repair a "nerve issue" in his foot, MLSSoccer.com reports. "It just means he has to get off it for a week," head coach Ryan Nelsen said. "He can play on it, and he's had it for a long time. You can play on it, but it's annoying. He's had a procedure to take care of that; it was always going to be done over these two weeks."

Toronto is off this week, which should allow Bradley enough time to recover from the procedure. Their next match comes May 3 against New England, although if Bradley is unable to return then, it could be May 7 against Vancouver.
