Jordan Morris flew to Columbus for re-evaluation by U.S. Soccer

U.S. Soccer came to the same conclusion Sounders did: Morris has a strained hamstring

By now, we all know that Seattle Sounders forward Jordan Morris will not be participating in the upcoming CONCACAF World Cup qualifying matches against Mexico and Costa Rica. We also know that Morris was replaced by Alan Gordon.

We recently found out that Morris in fact did travel to Columbus, Ohio on Monday. He was evaluated by U.S. Soccer Staff but there is no word on whether an MRI was involved.

Morris’ status is also being called “day-to-day” by head coach Brian Schmetzer for the first leg against the Colorado Rapids (head coach; that sounds nice to say).

Morris was subbed out at halftime during the Sounders’ leg two defeat against FC Dallas this past Sunday. At the time the team was calling it a thigh injury, but Morris was clearly seen with ice around his hamstring. Schmetzer did confirm after the match that it was hamstring strain.

Below is a video of Schmetzer speaking with the media about Morris returning.

We will have more updates as they come along.
