For the vast majority of Branko Boskovic's tenure with D.C. United, the highly paid veteran's fitness has lingered as a concern.
Since D.C. United kicked off its 2012 campaign with a revamped roster, one key personnel question has lingered over the club: Is Branko Boskovic in for the long haul or will the pricey midfielder be making an early exit?
