Revolution Notebook: Farrell had a torn retina, looking to Toronto, more

FOXBOROUGH — For the last couple of weeks, Revolution manager Brad Friedel has noted that Andrew Farrell has not been able to train with the club following a freak accident on the training ground in between their preseason trips to Spain and Florida.

On Tuesday, we got a little more detail as to what happened.

According to Friedel, a ball caromed off the goal frame and “inadvertently hit (Farrell) in his eye before he had time to close his eyes and react.”

The incident tore his retina in the right eye; we reported in last Tuesday’s Revolution Notebook that Farrell was favoring his right eye during some shuttle runs.
