Sounders Insider

Alonso out this week, others uncertain

Freddie Lungberg practiced with the Sounders today, after missing back-to-back games with migraines, but his status for the U.S. Open Cup game Tuesday against Colorado or the MLS match Saturday against Columbus remains uncertain.

"Freddie is feeling better," coach Sigi Schmid said. "… He went through training on Saturday pretty much, and went through training today. So we'll see how he feels tomorrow morning, and then we'll make a determination on the rest of the week with him."

The same uncertainly shrouds the status of Brad Evans (ankle) and Zach Scott (abdominal strain), while Osvaldo Alonso (quadriceps) has been ruled out for tomorrow and probably this weekend.

"It's the way the season goes," Schmid said. "You're going to go through a period of situations where you're going to have injuries. We've got some. We've been able to handle them and still come out with results, and we've got to continue to do that. As I've said before, it's all about the players on the field."
