Mullan apologizes to Zakuani, to be suspended 10 games?

4:52 p.m. — There won’t be an MLS announcement on supplemental discipline today. News on Brian Mullan’s punishment will have to wait.

We continue to wait for the official word from MLS on the supplemental discipline Colorado’s Brian Mullan will face for an injury-inducing tackle on Sounders FC’s Steve Zakuani.

In the meantime Mullan has issued a statement through the James Grant Sports Agency:

“It is with regret that my tackle resulted in the injury of Steve and I am deeply sorry to Steve and all those impacted by his injury.”

An unconfirmed report from Steven Goff of The Washington Post says Mullan could be facing a 10-game suspension and $5,000 fine.
