With a limited number of players available heading into Sunday’s road match with the New York Red Bulls, the Union received some good news on Thursday.

Forward C.J. Sapong is available for game action after completing the MLS Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health Program. Sapong was suspended for DUI and reckless driving on May 1 in Philadelphia. He missed three games.

“In compliance with MLS rules, C.J. has willingly participated in the necessary steps to get to this point,” technical director Chris Albright said in the team’s official release. “We look forward to having C.J. back in the team and will continue to support him, as we're confident in his commitment both on and off the field.”

The Union will likely be without leading scorer Fernando Aristeguieta, who is away on international duty, leaving Conor Casey as the club’s lone starting-caliber striker.

Prior to Sapong’s reinstatement, Antoine Hoppenot, who has just four minutes of game time this season, was set to be the Union’s only striker option aside from Casey.

In six matches this season, Sapong has a goal and assist. He was acquired from Sporting Kansas City in December.
