NEW YORK — Major League Soccer’s independent review panel has taken back the fine and one-game suspension it placed on Toronto FC forward Luke Moore earlier this week.

Moore was issued a red card and was ejected in the 29th minute of TFC’s 1-1 draw against the Chicago Fire on Wednesday. He collided with Fire midfielder Chris Ritter, appearing to elbow Ritter in the right temple.

Ritter temporarily left the game but was back within three minutes with his head bandaged. Toronto played the final hour with 10 men.

TFC submitted an appeal for review of the play, and the appeal was unanimously upheld Friday.

Toronto FC hosts D.C. United on Saturday.
