Cory Gibbs has been removed from the World Cup roster after he sustained a knee injury in this week's exhibition game against Morocco. He has been as replaced by Gregg Berhalter. Gibbs played the entire game at left back during Tuesday's 1-0 loss at Nashville, Tennessee. His right knee swelled on Wednesday, and tests showed he will be sidelined at least for several weeks, perhaps longer. Gibbs became the second of eight US defenders to be dropped because of a knee injury. One day after making the roster on May 2, Frankie Hejduk learned he had torn his right anterior cruciate ligament the previous weekend, and he was replaced by Chris Albright. (AP)
