Weston McKennie will not travel to Honduras and is returning to Italy later today.

"Weston will return to Italy and will be unavailable for the match against Honduras due to a violation of team policy,” USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter. “There are high expectations for those who are a part of the U.S. Men’s National Team, and in order to be successful it’s important that everyone in the group is accountable."

Sergiño Dest has been diagnosed with a right ankle sprain and will not be available for the game against Honduras. Dest was injured in the 44th minute in the 1-1 draw against Canada.
