COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Crew says midfielder Kirk Urso has died.

Team spokesman Marco Rosa says details of Urso's death are still being determined. Police in Columbus did not immediately return a call seeking more details.

Urso had been injured and Rosa says he was not with the team for its 1-0 loss Saturday to D.C. United in Washington.

The 22-year-old Urso had been in his first season with the Crew. A native of Lombard, Ill., he had played on North Carolina's NCAA title-winning team last fall and for the U.S. under-17 World Cup team in 2007.
