The Freddie Ljungberg update was the biggest news of the day, he’ll miss tomorrow and looks like he won’t play vs. Houston. Could be back at full practice as soon as next Tuesday, but even his status for the Toronto match Aug. 29 is up in the air.
After Thursday, Ljungberg will have missed six regular-season games this season.
The team has been cleared to add Ben Dragavon to the roster as backup goalkeeper for this week, with Chris Eylander still on the disabled list and Terry Boss having suffered a mild concussion in practice yesterday.
Boss has to be kept out a couple of days but is expected to be back to practice Friday.
Sigi Schmid said “We’ll see,” when asked if Eylander will play again this season. Eylander has been practicing.
Stephen King did not practice, nor did Tyrone Marshall, who has to miss Thursday’s game anyway after getting a red card last match.
