Michael Seamon out for the season with an ankle injury

The 23-year-old has struggled to get first-team action this year. His only appearance was in the third round of the U.S. Open Cup against the Kitsap Pumas. Seamon also started eights games in the MLS Reserve League, recording the most minutes of any Seattle field player with 719.

A second-year player out of Villanova, Seamon played eight MLS games (three as a starter) in 2010. His last league appearance was Sept. 9, 2010, against Real Salt Lake.

Last week, the Sounders announced that goalkeeper Terry Boss was placed on the DL and will miss the rest of the season with a concussion. Both moves open up spots on the roster if the team decides to sign someone before Thursday’s roster freeze.
