Eddie Johnson still questionable for Friday, Leo Gonzalez and Patrick Ianni ruled out

Both Sounders FC and Real Salt Lake are coming into Friday’s playoff game with injury concerns. Seattle coach Sigi Schmid addressed some of those after Thursday’s practice.

So will the Sounders be without leading scorer Eddie Johnson (adductor)?

“We have to see for sure,” Schmid said. “Chances are he might not be able to play tomorrow, but he went through a lot more today. He’s up working with (fitness coach Dave Tenney) right now. We’ll make the final determination tomorrow before the game, but for sure we think the second game is not going to be an issue at all. Tomorrow, we’ll have to see.

And how about defenders Leo Gonzalez (hamstring) and Patrick Ianni (calf)?

“Both getting better. Both not available for tomorrow, but they’re both getting better,” Schmid said. “Leo is actually advancing a little bit ahead of Pat right now.”
