Coach Sigi Schmid gave an update after Tuesday’s practice and said Alonso, while getting better each day, is “probably not there yet” in terms of being ready for this one.
“We’re hoping for Saturday he’ll be all right,” Schmid added.
You might notice Lamar Neagle (hip flexor) and DeAndre Yedlin (separated shoulder) are not listed on the report. Schmid also indicate the duo should be available against D.C., though we’ll have to see in what capacity.
The visitors are without three surefire starters in De Rosario, DeLeon and Jakovic.
