Crew Take Healing Step With Return To Training On Tuesday
Aug. 8, 2012, 12:04 p.m.
The Columbus Crew took a small and painful step toward starting the healing process in the aftermath of midfielder Kirk Urso’s death Sunday from an as-yet undetermined cause.
Players and staff gathered Tuesday morning at the Obetz training facility for the first time since returning from Washington two days earlier after a loss to D.C. United on Saturday night.
Urso, 22, was recovering from surgery in June for an adductor strain and not with the team. He collapsed early Sunday morning at a Columbus bar/restaurant and was pronounced dead an hour later at a hospital.
