HOUSTON (AP) Mexico's Gold Cup chances could take a hit after Tuesday's tune-up game with Honduras. Star forward Javier `'Chicharito" Hernandez left the scoreless draw with a collarbone injury.

"We still don't have a report," Mexico head coach Miguel Herrera said through a translator. "Yes, there's an impact, but we're just thinking about what's ahead. This is an unfortunate situation we cannot fix. With Chicharito he was going through a great moment in his career and the injury came; but we're just moving on."

Chicharito left in the 41st minute after a collision with Brayan Beckeles and was taken to a hospital to evaluate the injury. Hernandez has 40 goals for the Mexican national team in 75 appearances.
