Alonso is obviously the big surprise as his absence for Wednesday’s game was deemed a matter of “rest” by the team. It’ll be curious to hear if that was injury related all along and interesting to see if he can go tonight. UPDATE 11:14 p.m. — I do recall that Alonso appeared to injure his groin in the second half of the Philadelphia game last Saturday. Hmmm…

It’s also worth noting that Morales didn’t make the trip to Seattle for RSL.

Lastly, here’s coach Sigi Schmid on Ianni yesterday:

“We sent him in today to get an MRI to see if they can determine a little bit more what he did with his back,” Schmid said. “He felt fine playing in the Saturday game against Philadelphia, felt fine the next day, then it maybe was the flight from here to Dallas that aggravated it. The pain didn’t go away when we were down there.”
