Sounders remove Zakuani from DL

Seattle Sounders FC midfielder Steve Zakuani has been removed from the club's Disabled List, making him immediately eligible to participate in MLS games.

Zakuani, 25, was placed on the Disabled List on June 12 following successful sports hernia surgery.

Sounders FC hosts Real Salt Lake on Friday, September 13 on the Xbox Pitch at CenturyLink Field. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m. PT and will be nationally televised on NBC Sports Network.

It should be noted, however, that coach Sigi Schmid listed Zakuani among players who will not be available against Real Salt Lake on Friday, along with Brad Evans and Shalrie Joseph.
