Apparently the flu hit a few players on the plane ride back from L.A., and Ben Dragavon, Sounders FC’s third goalkeeper, came to practice today but was too sick and was sent home early. He’s expected back tomorrow.
UPDATE 5:52 p.m. — Osvaldo Alonso has a quadriceps deep bruise just above the knee in question. He looked OK running today.
FYI — I’m about to appear on a podcast from centerlinesoccer.com, an SF Bay Area Web site that covers the San Jose Earthquakes and FC Gold Pride of Women’s Professional Soccer. I’ve been told it will be published on the site late Thursday or early Friday.
