Just as Conor Casey is starting to find his way back on the field, two of the Rapids mainstays will be gone for the next three matches at a minimum.

Forward Omar Cummings is expected to miss four weeks with a sprain of his left ankle suffered in the 12th minute of the team’s 2-0 victory over FC Dallas on Sunday.

Cummings suffered a right ankle sprain last season that sidelined him for about six weeks.

Joining him on the rehabilitation side will be defender Marvell Wynne. Wynne was scratched for a right hamstring injuring leading up to the New England Revolution match on May 2. Wynne, who started the first eight games at center back, missed the Revolution loss and the win over FC Dallas.

The injuries come just as Casey has begun to see playing time following an Achilles injury in 2011. The target forward is expected to be playing in coming matches.

Colorado is off this weekend but plays at DC United on May 16. The Rapids host Sporting KC on May 19, and Montreal Impact on May 26.

After Montreal, the Rapids begin play in the U.S. Open Cup on May 29 and do not have another regular season match until June 16, when they play the Whitecaps in Vancouver.
