CHICAGO---Scratch midfielder Clint Dempsey from Saturday's World Cup qualifier in Honduras.

The Fulham FC player has been diagnosed with a shoulder sprain, U.S. Soccer announced Monday.

Dempsey, second among U.S. goalscorers (five goals) in qualifying, will be evaluated throughout the week to determine his availability for the Americans' final qualifier vs. Costa Rica at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. Oct. 14.

Dempsey, who received the Bronze Ball as the third best player at the FIFA Confederation Cup in June, left the game in the 84th minute of Fulham’s 2-2 tie at West Ham Sunday. He underwent an MRI evaluation Monday.

No replacement player will be added to the roster for Saturday’s game.
