Chris Konopka Suspended One Game

The Reds will be without Chris Konopka when they face the Philadelphia Union this Saturday at BMO Field.

Via a MLS release:

Toronto FC goalkeeper Chris Konopka has been suspended one game and fined an undisclosed amount for endangering the safey of an opponent in Toronto’s match on Sunday against New York City FC, the MLS Disciplinary Committee announced on Wednesday.

The incident took place in the 59th minute of Sunday's match vs. New York City FC: 

Joe Bendik, who hasn't started since Toronto’s 2-0 win in Orlando, will likely start in Konopka’s place. Bendik suffered a foot injury in the Orlando match. He's been available off the bench since the end of June. 

Konopka has started in 11 games this season, recording a record of 5-3-3 with three clean sheets and 36 saves.
