Sounders Insider

Nothing new on Dempsey, but other news good

The Sounders went through very light work this morning at rainy Starfire.

A few highlights from coach Sigi Schmid:

* There was no new news yet on the status of Clint Dempsey's hamstring injury.

* However, the other injury news was good, as Schmid hinted that Osvaldo Alonso, Tyrone Mears and Chad Marshall could all be ready for Dallas on Saturday,

* Schmid said that several factors went into his decision to start Lamar Neagle at forward alongside Obafemi Martins in the Tuesday friendly draw with Tijuana, and that the lineup could be different in Dallas.
