04:21 PM ET 03.24 | Jermaine Jones announced on Twitter that the injury he sustained in the snow game with Costa Rica has forced him out of the match with Mexico on Tuesday. He will now return home to seek treatment. Jones was stepped on, leaving a large gash near his ankle. He was removed from the game for a few minutes, but would come back on in the 1-0 win over Costa Rica. Jones put in a great effort in the midfield. With Jones leaving, this means another new starting lineup for Jurgen Klinsmann. Maurice Edu or Kyle Beckerman would be in line to fill in. They were both used as substitutes in Friday's match. Assuming Clarence Goodson still pairs with Omar Gonzalez at center defense, Edu seems to be the favorite. However, Edu and Gonzalez were the pairing when the U.S. beat Mexico at Azteca under Klinsmann.
