    Cartagines’ Scott close to getting all clear

    CARTAGO, Costa Rica – Costa Rican side Cartagines announced Thursday that forward Erick Scott is close to receiving medical clearance, so that he can resume playing. 

    The 32-year-old, who recently joined the 2013-14 CONCACAF Champions League participant after a stint with Uruguay de Coronado, underwent surgery on his right knee during the second week of July.

    He has been going through a regimen of physical therapy that includes pool work, knee strengthening, mobilization, balance and stability. 

    It is expected that Scott could be given approval to play as soon as Saturday. 

    Cartagines is scheduled to open domestic league play on August 10, when it hosts UCR.  Two days earlier, the Blues will meet Isidro Metapan in the Champions League opener for each.
