Kemar Lawrence Away From Team Due to Personal Reasons

Kemar Lawrence is away from the New York Red Bulls while attending his grandmother's funeral in Jamaica.

Lawrence will re-join the team in Kansas City on Tuesday.

Lawrence was evaluated for a concussion during the game against Chicago Fire and was cleared. 

“We had all our medical team check on him all last week," Head Coach Jesse Marsch said after training on Monday. "He came through fine.”

He later scored the game-winning goal in New York's 2-1 win over the Fire.

"We’re happy he’s OK and we hope he gets through the next couple of days in a good way,” Marsch said.
