Steve Zakuani hurt; Kevin Forrest waived

Sounders midfielder Steve Zakuani was helped from the Starfire practice pitch this morning with an ankle injury -- right ankle, I believe.

After sitting on the bench for 20 minutes or so, Zakuani was taken from the field on a cart.

As he was getting onto the cart, he seemed clearly unable to put weight on the ankle. However, no diagnosis or prognosis was immediately available.

Meanwhile, the club also announced that forward Kevin Forrest has been placed on waivers.

Forrest, 24, did not play in any MLS games but he scored the lone goal in Seattle's U.S. Open Cup play-in game against Colorado. He had signed a senior developmental player contract March 24.
