Injury Updates - it's a long list, but Alonso back soon

A sight that Sounders fans should expect this weekend - USA TODAY Sports

While Osvaldo Alonso is likely back this weekend, things at the end of the roster are not good.

Today's light training day was mainly recovery by both the First Team and the Reserves (they lost to Vancouver 4-nil Sunday) and most news focused on the recent wave of injuries. There is some bright news on that front as midfielder Osvaldo Alonso should be back for the match against San Jose.

"He did the work this weekend that we wanted him to do so he'll be full in training tomorrow," Sigi Schmid told reporters at Starfire. "The expectation is that he should be able to play this weekend."

But, the back end of the roster just got hit with a wave of injuries.

Marcus Hahnemann is day-to-day per Sigi Schmid at today's practice. He injured his hamstring in yesterday's Reserve loss to Vancouver. Doug Herrick should remain with Seattle as they are down two keepers. Herrick is part of the MLS keeper pool.

Andy Rose also left the Reserve game early with a hamstring issue.

Alex Caskey has an ankle issue. While he played 90 in the Reserve match the club is considering surgery. "It would just be sort of a clean out so it might only keep him out a couple of weeks," Schmid said. The two hamstring issues should be back sooner.

Philip Lund did not practice as he was injured.

Steve Zakuani continued his comeback trail doing some work with a ball. He was placed on the Disabled List shortly after his surgery and is eligible to come back on August 3rd. This means they have four roster slots open at this time.

If Seattle had a Reserve Match this weekend their roster would feature several invitees.
