The Italian striker will be missing the next 6-8 weeks due to an injury he got in last Saturdays match against the Vancouver Whitecaps early on in the game.

The injury that sidelined Matteo Mancosu in the opening minutes to Saturday's game was a tear in his thigh. Anthony Jackson-Hamel then came in for Mancosu and played around 80 minutes which is the most the French Canadian has ever played in a single game.

With Mancosu being injured for a long period of time, we now ask the question, who will take his spot as the starting striker? Well, the answer may be Jackson-Hamel who has 3 goals in 3 games. When the Impact faces D.C this weekend we will find out which striker Biello will choose, will it be Oduro or Jackson-Hamel?
