Sounders FC’s midweek injury report

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

* * *

Normally, I’d also include the opponent’s injury report, but obviously Caledonia AIA’s is not as accessible.

Estrada and Rose were each set to undergo X-rays after Monday’s practice, so it’s unlikely we’ll get an update on them until later in the week. Access, obviously, is limited while the team is on the road.

The only change from the Seattle’s last report is the downgrade of Weber (he was listed as “questionable” at the end of last week). I’ll also continue to assume it’s an adductor issue, which had affected him earlier in the season, and not an abductor.

Lastly, there’s also reason to believe forward Eddie Johnson didn’t make the trip to Trinidad. He’s been tweeting all day and mentioned how well a training session went, neither of which are consistent with what the rest of the team has been up to. Johnson’s absence would appear to be a matter of rest, not something injury-related, and he’d presumably join the Sounders in Dallas. Coach Sigi Schmid had indicated that would be the case with a few guys.
