Eddie Johnson was always going to be a long shot to play Friday after he suffered an adductor strain in Sounders FC’s regular-season finale Sunday.
“Chances are he might not be able to play tomorrow,” said Schmid.
Even in the event that Johnson is available off the bench, that still means someone else will be in the starting lineup. Potential replacement options mentioned Tuesday by Schmid were Sammy Ochoa, David Estrada and Steve Zakuani. A vocal segment of fan base has also clamored for Mario Martinez to assume an increased role.
So what do you think?
