The Toronto FC injury list continues to grow.

Manager Ryan Nelsen says striker Jermain Defoe (hamstring) and defender Doneil Henry (knee) are definitely out for Saturday's home game against the Colorado Rapids. Midfielders Jonathan Osorio (hamstring) is probably out and Alvaro Rey (hamstring) is very doubtful.

A decision on midfielder Michael Bradley, whose body is feeling the effects of two games in four days last week, will be made ahead of Saturday's kickoff.
