Josef Martinez left Saturday's win over San Jose with what appeared to be a knee injury.

On Monday morning a report came from Doug Roberson that Josef would miss several weeks, but that there's a chance he could return for the playoffs. 

Atlanta United broadcaster Mike Conti joined Hugh Douglas and John Fricke and spoke about how the team would be best served in replacing Josef Martinez.

"The 3-5-2 is working," said Conti. "The easiest like-for-like change would be to put Brandon Vazquez in as your striker up top with Pity as the second striker tucked in a little behind him in a 3-5-2. You could also put Tito Villalba there; you could rotate them. Anything othe than that you're going to change the formation, you're going to change the shape."
