Sounders FC vs. Chivas USA, injury report

SEATTLE SOUNDERS FCOUT: FW Babayele Sodade (R knee ACL tear); FW David Estrada (L foot fracture); MF Andy Rose (rib fracture)

CHIVAS USAOUT: MF Marvin Iraheta (L knee ACL); QUESTIONABLE: MF Peter Vagenas (R hamstring strain); MF Ryan Smith (R hamstring strain)

Rose is a new and significant addition for the Sounders as he suffered the injury on a studs-to-the-chest challenge late in Saturday’s game from Vancouver’s Gershon Koffie. The Whitecaps midfielder has suspended a game and fined by the MLS Disciplinary Committee, the league announced Tuesday. Koffie was also fined an additional amount for an “improper gesture” afterward.

Elsewhere, Estrada and Sodade have each shown good progress recently. Estrada was running on his own body weight before Sunday’s reserve game and should be cleared to practice soon. He’d need about 1-2 weeks after that before his return.

Sodade is facing a much longer recovery but has been cleared for partial training. I caught up with the rookie forward Sunday and will have an update on the blog soon.
