The Sounders’ listing is getting shorter, eh? You’ll notice Gspurning’s injury is now listed as a hip strain, which provides a little more clarity. He’s still expected to miss the next two games, at least.

Another question mark for the Sounders is midfielder Alvaro Fernandez, who had a quad strain but is no longer listed. Here is coach Sigi Schmid on Flaco’s status before the team took off for Dallas:

“He’s doing well, doing better. It’s a difficult (decision) for Wednesday because I think he’s really, really close, and it’s a matter of us saying, ‘Do we play him Wednesday and understand that maybe we have to limit him on Saturday? Or do we save him a little bit for Saturday?’ That’s a decision we’re going to make.”
