Lampard (calf) won't play in Sunday's game against Orlando City or Wednesday's All-Star Game against Tottenham, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

Lampard continues to be plagued by a calf injury which has delayed his MLS debut for the past few weeks. His next opportunity to play is against Montreal, although there's some obvious doubt it will take place given the unknown severity of his injury.

Lampard (calf) has returned to training but will not play Saturday against New England, according to the New York Post.

Lampard suffered the injury in training last week, which held him out last Sunday against Toronto, and there was speculation he could sit again because the Revs play on turf. His next opportunity to play will come July 26 against Orlando City at Yankee Stadium.

Lampard is expected to make his NYC FC debut in Sunday's game against Toronto FC, Kurtis Larson of the Toronto Sun reports.

After 882 club appearances and 259 Premiere League goals, Lampard will take his talents stateside as he joins David Villa and Andrea Pirlo as the three designated players on the New York squad. Lampard should certainly be a perennial starter moving forward and will likely be an elite option across all formats as the MLS season enters its second half.

Lampard scored in the 31st minute of Manchester City's 2-0 win over Southampton on Sunday.

Lampard, who will join MLS side NYC FC later this summer, made 32 appearances during his season-long loan at Man City, finishing with six goals and one assist. It is widely believed that he has played his last Premier League match, though it was also widely believed that he would already be playing in MLS. If this is the end, Lampard leaves the Premier League with 259 goals in 882 club appearances.
