Seattle Sounders Place Mike Seamon On Injured List

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.

As Seattle 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.

Midfielder Michael Seamon Placed on Disabled List

 

RENTON, WASH. - Seattle Sounders FC announced today that midfielder Michael Seamon has been placed on the disabled list due to a lateral ankle tendon injury.

 

As a result, Seamon, 23, will miss the remainder of the season. In his only competitive appearance this season, he started and played 85 minutes in the third round of the U.S. Open Cup. He also started all eight Major League Soccer Reserve League games, logging 719 minutes, the most of any field player.

 

Seamon made eight appearances with three starts in MLS last season. His last league appearance was September 9, 2010. This is Seamon's second MLS season with Sounders FC.

Reports from the ECS Happy Hour are that Seamon makes a great mixed drink. Get well soon you Jersey guy.
