Sounders injury update before Tottenham friendly Saturday

A few injury notes on the eve of Saturday’s Sounders-Tottenham Hotspur friendly:

-Brad Evans is most likely out for the match, according to Sounders coach Sigi Schmid. He said it’s a “capsule-type” injury in Evans’ upper calf muscle. Evans missed Sunday’s match against Portland with what was then called a sore knee. He went in for an MRI this week, which is when the “capsule-type” injury was found.

-Leo Gonzalez is also unlikely to play Saturday. He tweaked a hamstring and missed Sunday’s match against Portland. Schmid said the team was just going to “move forward slowly” with both of those guys.

-Marcus Hahnemann (hamstring) was jogging at practice on Friday; no word on whether he will play on Saturday or not.

-Djimi Traore and Dylan Remick, who have both missed several games for Seattle, might see their chance to get back on the pitch Saturday. Said Schmid: “We’re seeing about minutes for Remick and minutes for Djimi.”

Traore had suffered a slight tear in his adductor during the Sounders’ match against Vancouver in late May. Remick also had suffered an adductor injury.

 

Other notes:

-The Sounders are encouraging fans to arrive early for Saturday’s friendly versus Tottenham.  Kickoff is set for 1 p.m., but traffic issues will slow down many fans’ commutes to CenturyLink Field. At Bellevue Way Southeast, Westbound Interstate 90 is going to be reduced to one lane, beginning 9:30 p.m. tonight, and lasting until next Friday, July 25. Fans would be wise to avoid I-90 and travel via 520 or I-405.

CenturyLink gates open at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday.
