Coach Sigi Schmid gave updates after Friday’s practice and said Martins, Traore and midfielder Osvaldo Alonso all practiced and look to be on track to be available Sunday.

“Once they go through that practice it’s a matter of the reaction the next day,” Schmid said, “how they are then.”

Asked specifically if he expects the trio to be able to contribute, Schmid said: “Yeah, yeah. With all of them, yeah.”

Portland has a number of concerns, particularly at center back and also center midfield with Diego Chara suspended due to yellow-card accumulation.
