New England Revolution striker Taylor Twellman is out indefinitely due to ongoing concussion-related problems, sources said.

It had earlier been reported that Twellman is out for the season, but there is a chance he could play if the Revolution advances in the playoffs.

Twellman, the team's co-leader with eight goals, has played in just 16 of the Revolution's 30 games this season. He has been plagued by a number of injuries, including missing six weeks after suffering torn cartilage in his right knee.

It's another major blow for the Revolution, who lost midfielder Steve Ralston Oct. 11 to a broken right fibula. Ralston is New England's leading scorer with eight goals and seven assists.

The Revolution host the Chicago Fire in the first round of the Eastern Conference semifinals Thursday in the opener of a two-game, aggregate-goal series. The second game is Nov. 6 in Chicago.
