Notes from today’s Sounders FC practice, May 19

Midfielder Brad Evans didn’t practice and is scheduled for the MRI on his knee today. He also said he has a calf injury to go with the concussion, all suffered on the same collision with FC Dallas GK Ray Burse. Evans said he was really groggy on the bench after the incident and that he was unconscious on the field right after the play. He didn’t hear Burse call out to let others know he was coming out for the ball, a common practice with goalkeepers, so he made full contact with Burse.

Midfielder Freddie Ljungberg left practice early, still feeling the effects of a migraine, and received treatment.

Defender Zach Scott will be further examined after missing practice today, though he was out on the field at Starfire. Scott said he still has trouble walking due to a groin or abdominal strain suffered last Saturday. The injury could also be a sports hernia, he said, in which case he could have surgery and be back sooner than later.

Defender Nate Sturgis did practice after missing the game with a hamstring problem.

Coach Sigi Schmid said the team will decide what to do with Evans tomorrow (as in perhaps a trip to injured reserve) and that with Ljungberg the team is “taking it one day at a time.”

“I don’t think they’ll all be back,” Schmid said of the injured players, referring to availability for the Colorado Rapids match this weekend.
