Sounders Insider

Riley, Ljungberg get green light

The rain came down pretty hard just as the Sounders were finishing up practice this morning at Starfire.

And when they finished, I noticed defending Jame Riley walking pretty normally from the pitch.

Afterward, coach Sigi Schmid confirmed that Riley (ankle) will be traveling with the team to Kansas City today, as will Freddy Ljungberg (soreness).

"James was better today," he said. "So we didn't want to do too much with him today. He's going on the trip, and if he came through this today OK, he should be all right for tomorrow."

Here's the weather report for Kansas City, where it looks like a pretty nice soccer Saturday.
