The three-one Sounders Reserve win over Oregon State came at a tough price as Kevin Parsemain tore his ACL in the second half. Sigi Schmid said today that it was when Parsemain planted his foot about to shoot on goal. The Beaver keeper was near Kevin when he went down on a very tight play that could have resulted in a goal, and in this worst case resulted in an injury. Parsemain was in the 18 against Portland and played ~70 minutes against Oregon State. Per the team release he's expected back six to seven months after the surgery.

Damion Lowe's hip surgery and recovery will put him about six weeks out from fitness training according to Schmid. The release notes that he will be out for about four months.

Each of the three loaned players (Estrada, Ockford, Zavaleta) can be recalled. Sigi indicated that the injuries won't change anything in the near term, but "it might change some things long term." Neither player is on the Injured List at this time. Both are on a recovery path that would not make a Season Ending Injured List move necessary. They could be placed on the short-term Disabled List which would require them to miss six games while opening up both the roster and international slots.

Two other players are injured but do not need surgery and could be back soon.

Andy Rose is dealing with a hamstring issue. Brad Evans' contusion is still an issue as well.

"Both are doing better," Schmid told the media today. 'Evans we're being really slow with because he has a tendency to push too hard too quick. I think that's why he set himself back a little bit. So we want to make sure that if he's not ready for Dallas this weekend that he's definitely going to be ready for Chivas the next weekend."
