Here's some of what coach Sigi Schmid had to say about the health of his team after a training session today when Steve Zakuani mostly rode a bike, Obafemi Martions was kept out of major work, and Eddie Johnson seemed to tweak an ankle late.
"Eddie should be fine," Schmid said. "Zakuani tweaked something a little bit yesterday, so we wanted to go easy today. Oba did what we felt he could do – did a little more than we actually thought he could do. So now we’ll see how he comes back and how he feels when he comes back in tomorrow for treatment."
On if Osvaldo Alonso, Djimi Traore and Martins are expected to be available Sunday when Portland visits: I think they’re all in consideration for the game. That’s why we’ve done the training the way we’ve done this week. We want to be sure that they’re ready to play Sunday.
