Sigi Schmid and the Seattle Sounders may need to make further adjustments to their ideal starting lineup in Friday night's match against the Houston Dynamo. At practice today Schmid indicated that Adam Johansson has a minor injury and will be a game-time decision.
"We wanted to see how he reacted today so we wanted to keep him off the field. It's going to be a gametime decision with him. There's a possibility he might not go, but we'll have to see," Schmid said.
"We just want to be really careful. It's not anything really extreme, we just want to make certain it doesn't become something worse."
Sigi uses many players and doesn't necessarily settle on a fixed XI. Healthy depth at right back is provided by Zach Scott and Roger Levesque. The Sounders started 13 players in just three competitive matches in 2012, that number should increase by at least two on Friday night.
