A few days before Austin FC's home match on Sunday, Major League Soccer reported that Designated Player Cecilio Dominguez is suspended indefinitely pending an investigation into "possible off-field misconduct."


Dominguez, who is a near-constant starter for the team, will be absent for at least two matches in a row after missing last week's San Jose match to finalize his green card process in his home country of Paraguay.

The league did not disclose what possible misconduct Dominguez engaged in.

"Mr. Domínguez will be prohibited from engaging in team activities during the pendency of the investigation," the MLS statement reads. "MLS will remain in close communication with Austin FC and the MLS Players Association throughout the process."

Austin FC will play without its starting forward in a home match against Minnesota United at 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
