UPDATED 1:01 p.m. Saturday — Brown and Harbottle are the additions for Colorado. Twitter rumors are that Eddie Johnson didn’t make the trip for the Sounders, but we’ll know in a couple hours.
You’ll notice Brad Evans is no longer listed for Seattle, and both he and coach Sigi Schmid indicated he’s completely back from the calf strain. Martins has been upgraded to questionable for the Sounders but has been limited a little bit the past two practices.
Johnson has been able to train and even came in to work during the off day Wednesday with some teammates.
Ianni was described by Schmid as being “very close,” but that the defender still needs to work on fitness.
