I’m not on Instagram, so some of you have probably seen this already, but Sounders FC’s Steve Zakuani provided this update the other day.

It appears he suffered an injury last week and will need surgery. “Not too serious,” the midfielder noted. The Sounders are off the next couple days, so we’ll get a formal update when they are back in action Wednesday.

Safe to say we can add Zakuani to the list of guys unavailable Saturday against the Whitecaps, one that includes Eddie Johnson (USMNT), Brad Evans (USMNT), Mario Martinez (Honduras), Shalrie Joseph (suspension), probably Osvaldo Alonso (thigh injury) and possibly Obafemi Martins (barring a red card reversal).
