New York, NY (Sports Network) - Chicago Fire forward Guillermo Franco was suspended one additional match and fined an undisclosed amount for endangering the safety of his opponent, MLS announced Thursday.

Franco committed a "reckless challenge" on Philadelphia Union midfielder Brian Carroll in the 78th minute of their match Wednesday. He earned a red card, but was given the additional punishment by the MLS Disciplinary Committee.

He will serve the first game of his suspension Saturday when Chicago visit Red Bull New York and miss the Oct. 20 match against the New England Revolution.
