The defender was injured making a decisive block but should be fine to face El Salvador and Trinidad & Tobago next week. Rodgers said: "Jay made a real brave block towards the end of the first half and his foot went numb. "We looked at it at half-time and our medical team felt he could be alright, but we could see that he was struggling to move and we didn't want to make it worse so he came off. "But at this moment Jay is fine and will travel on international duty with America next week."
