Sounders Insider

Ljungberg, Scott healthy; others getting healthier

The Sounders went through a light practice today, and then a light-hearted interview session talking about the U.S. national team's result today and Taylor Grapham's appearance on "The Price is Right."

I'll try to come back with more on that later. But the news today was mostly the increasingly healthy team.

Coach Sigi Schmid said it was a good thing that his team had a mid-season break of three days off. And he said that aside from mental health, they're getting physically healthier, as well. He said Freddy Ljungberg, who missed the draw at New York on Saturday due to a sore hamstring, should be ready for Colorado's visit on Sunday. Schmid also cited Smith and Zack Scott are fit to play, and he cited Graham and reserve keeper Chris Eylander as making progress.
