Union rookie Raymon Gaddis will miss Saturday's match at Houston with a one-game suspension, Major League Soccer's Disciplinary Committee announced Thursday.

The right back also incurred a fine of an undisclosed amount.

Gaddis recklessly tackled Sporting Kansas City midfielder Roger Espinoza in the 24th minute of the Union's 4-0 victory June 23. Espinoza had already played the ball when Gaddis tackled him high, drawing a yellow card. (Video of the tackle is embedded above.)

The absence of Gaddis should not be such a burden for the Union, assuming regular right back Sheanon Williams can return from a right big-toe fracture. Wednesday, Union interim manager John Hackworth spoke promisingly of Williams' progress and said Williams' return wouldn't be out of the question.
