Martins misses training for mystery X-ray

"Oba wasn’t (at training). He was upstairs, and we had to send him for an X-ray. He’s got a little bit of a complaint. We want to make sure with the X-ray, and then we’ll see and make a determination tomorrow."

The natural follow-up followed: Is there a body part?

"No," Schmid said. "… I’m being Bruce Arena. It’s a general body full-scan X-ray."

The Sounders' next match is Saturday in Vancouver.

Martins has six goals for the Sounders this season, second behind Clint Dempsey's seven.

If Oba can't go, the logical replacement candidates would be Chad Barrett or Lamar Neagle.
