Sounders Insider

Stephen King only Sounders scratch for Barca

Stephen King's hamstring injury is the only Sounder injury serious enough to keep anyone out of tomorrow's game against FC Barcelona, coach Sigi Schmid said at practice today.

"Stephen King probably can't go in this game. We got to see how (Freddie) Ljungberg recovers from today because today was the first day that he's done anything," Schmid said. "He said he felt pretty good, so we think he'll be able to go. Tyrone (Marshall) has a little bit of a hamstring so we'll see how he came through today. It's really only Stephen King at this stage."

We talked a little bit with Ljungberg today, and I'll make another full post on that in a little while. But the impression I got is that he doesn't expect to start, but maybe to come on in the final 20 minutes or so.

More later.
