Taylor Graham has a broken foot

That’s the word from the Sounders’ training staff. Graham was diagnosed with the injury, officially termed a fracture of the tibial sesamoid, Monday after an X-ray, and his return to play is undetermined pending another examination when he and the team return to Seattle from Argentina.

Graham, a central defender, played 68 minutes in last Sunday’s exhibition win over the Vancouver Whitecaps, but has done nothing since. Such an injury can take up to eight weeks to heal enough so that Graham can wear a protective pad in his shoe.

Pure speculation here, but Graham could need surgery. And it seems likely he won’t be able to play when the regular season opens in three weeks.
