HARRISON, N.J. (AP) -- MLS leading scorer Thierry Henry is going to miss up to four weeks with a strained right hamstring.

The New York Red Bulls announced Tuesday that a scan taken on Monday showed the injury was not as bad as originally thought and the French star is expected to be out no more than a month.

Henry was injured in a 1-0 win over New England on Saturday. He scored his ninth goal in the win.

The Red Bulls also announced that midfielder Teemu Tainio (sprained right knee); defender Wilman Conde (strained groin); defender Roy Miller (fluid on his left knee), defender Stephen Keel (strained back) and forward Jose Angulo (sprained right knee) would miss Saturday's game against the Galaxy in Los Angeles.
