Earthquakes forward Chris Wondolowski, the 2012 Major League Soccer MVP, is out for Saturday's match at D.C. United with a right foot contusion, according to the club.
Wondolowski, who did not make the trip to Washington, D.C., suffered the injury in a collision in practice on Wednesday. He had his right foot wrapped in an ice pack before leaving the facility. A Quakes spokesman said he will be re-evaluated next week.
Wondolowski, a Danville native, leads the Quakes (4-6-6) with five goals and shares the lead in assists with three. But he hasn't scored since a 2-1 win over Toronto FC on May 8.
Now the Quakes will end a four-game road swing without him. San Jose broke back into the win column last weekend in a 2-1 win over the Colorado Rapids. It was the first game under interim head coach Mark Watson, who replaced longtime coach Frank Yallop on June 7.
Last season, Wondolowski tied the league scoring record with 27 goals.
