Mears suffers hamstring tear

Seattle right back Tyrone Mears left the Sounders 3-2 loss to San Jose tonight with what he called "a little hamstring tear."

The injury will be examined and more learned, but Mears said he hopes to be out only a couple of weeks.

Here's what acting coach Brian Schmetzer had said previously about subbing Mears out in the 80th minute:

“I do not have a specific injury on Tyrone, but we definitely pulled him because of the injury, not for any tactical reason.”
