You’ll notice Obafemi Martins (knee), Shalrie Joseph (hamstring) and Marc Burch (groin) are no longer listed for Seattle, which is good news. Martins, of course, played in the last game and Joseph went 90 minutes in Sunday’s reserve game.
On the Dallas side, here’s a report that said John — a Shoreline native and University of Washington product — won’t be traveling back home.
Coach Sigi Schmid was asked after Friday’s practice how the team stood health-wise.
“We’re good,” he said. “Obviously Patrick Ianni missed practice this week with flu-like symptoms, so we’ll see how he feels after today. Steve Zakuani is the one guys we’ve held out. Everybody else looks all right.”
