The Sounders trained at Qwest Field this morning, and the injury updates were generally good.

Both Freddie Ljungberg and Brad Evans said they expect to play Saturday against Columbus, assuming no setbacks. (Ljungberg, in fact, appeared to be feeling very good. He celebrated loudly when putting a volley into the back of the net, and then ended practice by filling in in goal.

Meanwhile, coach Sigi Schmid said that Zach Scott’s lower abdominal strain likely will not land him on the injured reserve as previously assumed.

Schmid also said that Osvaldo Alondo (quadriceps strain) is coming along well, perhaps better than expected.

Even at that, the Sounders have two players on the IR — defender Taylor Graham and keeper Chris Eylander — so Schmid admitted that a new player could be added “if the right situation presents itself.”
