Coach Sigi Schmid said Martins probably won’t be ready for this one, and didn’t bring up Joseph and Zakuani in Monday’s conference call when asked which players might be set to come back.

Burch did travel to Kansas City, so he could be available. Defender Patrick Ianni also isn’t listed on the injury report for the first time this year and he’s back from the broken foot suffered in preseason.

The absences of Besler and Feilhaber in Sunday’s game weren’t quite clear then but are now. We’ll see if they’re able to come back.
