Seattle Sounders backup goalkeeper Terry Boss is back with the team a little earlier than expected after he may have suffered a concussion while playing in a World Cup qualifying match with the Puerto Rico national team on Friday. The Sounders have only said that he is currently being evaluated. Boss was expected to be with Puerto Rico until after Tuesday's game against Canada.

If Boss does, indeed, have a concussion, it would be his second in the past six weeks. Boss only returned to the team a couple weeks ago after sitting out nearly a month with symptoms stemming from a concussion he suffered against Manchester United. 

Boss has not yet played in a regular-season match for the Sounders, but has played reasonably well in non-MLS matches. He is 2-0-0 in CONCACAF Champions League play, including a shutout against Monterrey, and 2-0-0 in U.S. Open Cup play. While maybe not the prettiest goalkeeper, he has yet to allow more than one goal in any cup appearance.
