The Sounders will have one last practice Wednesday night from Jeld-Wen Field, and I’ll provide updates afterward. Here was the injury rundown from coach Sigi Schmid after Tuesday’s practice.
“They were able to do what we wanted them to do, which was important,” Schmid said. “DeAndre got through the portion of practice we wanted him to get through. Oba got through what we wanted him to get through — stepped it up from yesterday, so that was really, really encouraging. Leo we kept inside. Zach with the cracked rib played, got through the training what we felt he could get through. So we’re pleased. We’re as healthy as we can be right now.”
Leo Gonzalez is perhaps the biggest question mark, as he’s been playing through pain recently and really looked to perhaps overexert himself to stop a late Ryan Johnson breakaway Saturday.
For Portland, Maximiliano Urruti is really the only question mark. He hasn’t played since suffering the injury in an Oct. 13 home game against Seattle.
