The 2-0 Sounders are using every bit of their considerable depth already this season, and it looks like it will be the same Saturday when the San Jose Earthquakes visit CenturyLink Field.

Here’s an update from coach Sigi Schmid:

On forward Eddie Johnson: “For us right now, the main thing is to get Eddie Johnson healthy, to get him fit. So our decision this week is to really work on his fitness. He did a lot of work yesterday and today as well. We’ve got a little reserve game Sunday against Gonzaga, so he’ll probably play some minutes in that. So that’s what we want to do first. And once he’s fit and he’s well that way, he’ll get time on the field.

On midfielder Brad Evans and defender Adam Johansson) “I think they both made improvements. Brad’s going to be a game-time decision for us, and Adam – Johansson – will be not in this week, but we think he will be ready to go by DC (United on April 7).”

On midfielder Mauro Rosales) “He’s coming along. Obviously this week is a no for him. We’ll have to see whether next week is a possibility for him or if it’s the week after. But he’s doing pretty good. He took part in all the passing drills with the team, and a lot more running. … It’s a positive step.”
