Fredy Montero “unlikely” to play Saturday against Chicago

“The chance of him playing on Saturday is probably unlikely at this stage. There’s still some swelling in there. They want to make sure that there’s still no infection into the wound. He’s able to do some light stuff. We had him out here doing a little bit of stuff before, but right now, unless there’s a miraculous change tomorrow, is doesn’t look likely.

Schmid was then asked if he’d stick with Mauro Rosales as the withdrawn forward to replace Montero — a lineup move he made Saturday against San Jose.

“Last week I thought offensively we played alright, but we’re still looking at possibilities and maybe some lineup changes. Overall, I thought offensively we did alright and I thought Rosales had a good 45 minutes for sure.”

What do you think Sounders FC fans. Stick with same offensive formation as last week?
