Real Salt Lake's Yordany Alvarez will be suspended for his tackle on New York Red Bull Tim Cahill.
RSL defender Nat Borchers said in a Thursday interview on the team-owned ESPN 700 that Alvarez would be suspended three weeks for a first-half tackle Saturday that could keep Cahill out for a month with a leg injury. The Salt Lake Tribune has confirmed a suspension will keep Alvarez out of Saturday's rivalry game against the Colorado Rapids. But, according to a source, the number of games Alvarez will miss has not yet been made official.
Appeals of MLS Disciplinary Committee decisions are typical, and that is likely the hold up with Alvarez.
