Revolution players care for loved ones injured in marathon blasts

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Two members of the Boston sports community had loved ones injured in the Boston Marathon explosions.

New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis' father-in-law, John Odom, remained in critical condition Tuesday after being injured in the explosions.

Reis says John Odom underwent three surgeries in 40 hours, is making slow progress and "we still don't know if he's going to make it."

Odom was the only one in the original group of seven people who was hurt as they watched the race in which Reis' wife was running, the goalkeeper said. Reis had just moved closer to the finish line to take pictures when the bomb went off, he said.

He said Odom was probably about 10 feet away from the explosion.

Reis, a 16-year Major League Soccer veteran in his 11th season with New England, attended practice Wednesday and updated teammates on his father-in-law's condition.

Revolution defender Chris Tierney's girlfriend is in stable condition after sustaining external injuries in the explosions.

More than 150 people were injured and three people died after two explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Boylston Street Monday.
