It appears as Atlanta United made out very luckily in regard to Josef Martinez's injury. Martinez rejoined the team at practice on Friday and was said to be about 80-85 percent.

While Josef's status for Sunday's game against NYCFC is still up in the air, its likely he will rejoin the team sooner rather than later.

Former Atlanta United defender Sal Zizzo joined Rob Tribble and Hugh Douglas and spoke about the possibility of Atlanta United, if they can stay healthy, returning to win another MLS Championship.

"Atlanta is getting healthy at the right time. I actually think they'll get first in the Eastern Conference. And with the new playoff format, I don't see anybody beating Atlanta at home in the playoffs," says Zizzo. "Even with the new coach, you got a core group of guys, a lot of guys that did it last year and know what it's going to take."
