NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Soccer has rescheduled a game between Columbus Crew and Toronto FC to allow Crew players to attend teammate Kirk Urso's funeral.

The game, originally scheduled for Saturday in Columbus, will be played Wednesday, Aug. 22 at Crew Stadium.

The 22-year-old Urso died Sunday at Grant Medical Center in Columbus after collapsing at a downtown bar and restaurant. On Monday, a coroner said signs pointed to "an apparent natural death" pending results from toxicology tests and on other tissue after an autopsy.
