Remember the injury woes of the early season? It would seem they are crawling back into the management of the Seattle Sounders as Mike Seamon now joins the injured list. Terry Boss and Steve Zakuani are also on the list. O'Brian White could still be added which would put the list at its maximum number of four. While it is never good for a player to be injured, this does free up some roster space. The salary budget is not opened up by the moves though.
still needs a third goalkeeper, is obviously looking at adding a right back or utility defensive minded player and the roster lock date for the MLS Cup Playoffs is set for Thursday September 15th. Having space to operate within those environments is a small benefit though.
Seamon saw extensive time in Reserve League games, playing 719 minutes. The crowded midfield saw limited play in competitive first team action, but at only 23 he is still a pre-peak player that should be looking for much more playing time in 2012.
