This is the official injury report for the Columbus game:
SEATTLE SOUNDERS FC – OUT: GK Chris Eylander (L medial knee bone bruise); DF Zach Scott (lower abdominal pain); DF Taylor Graham (R mid-foot).
DOUBTFUL: MF Osvaldo Alonso (R quad strain);
QUESTIONABLE: MF Brad Evans (L ankle sprain/L tibial bone bruise); FW Jarrod Smith (L hamstring strain);
PROBABLE: MF Freddie Ljungberg (migraine recovery)
COLUMBUS CREW – OUT: MF Adam Moffat (L hamstring strain); DF Andy Iro (L quad strain); GK William Hesmer (lumbar back strain); QUESTIONABLE: DF Frankie Hejduk (L groin strain).
Evans said he was a bit surprised that the Crew didn’t protect him in expansion draft.
“But you have team meetings and they explain why,” Evans said. “You have some international players that have to be protected, trying to keep the best core that they can together. It was between a couple of guys, and I’m extremely happy to be here, that’s for sure.”
