The Sounders revealed today that defender Patrick Ianni is suffering from a bulging disc in his back. Initial treatment will be rest. He is out for this weekend’s game at Vancouver, but otherwise there is no prognosis of how long he might be out.

“He’s got something with his disc that we’ve got to let calm down,” coach Sigi Schmid said after training today. “And then as he calms down with that, it’s just a matter of what he can do: Can he tolerate this type of thing.”

Defender Leo Gonzalez also was pulled out of practice today with “a little bit of a quad” issue. “We just wanted to be careful,” Schmid said.
