American forward Josh Sargent did not dress because of an injury for Norwich’s match against Stoke on Saturday in England’s second tier League Championship.
The 22-year-old forward from O’Fallon, Missouri, is bidding for a spot on the U.S. World Cup roster. He left an Oct. 18 game against Luton after his leg stiffened up following a challenge but returned to play full matches at Sheffield United on Oct. 22 and at Burnley three days later.
The Stoke Sentinel reported he sustained a calf injury against Burnley.
Sargent has eight goals for Norwich this season and five goals in 20 international appearances.
U.S. coach Gregg Berhalter will announce his 26-man World Cup roster on Nov. 9.
