Portland Timbers Training Quotes and Notes: They're Back

William Conwell

The Timbers were suddenly back at full strength today in today's training.

Today's Portland Timbers practice session at the team's Beaverton training facility saw the return of a number of players who were absent yesterday. With players getting back into practice after injuries and getting back into town from international duty, the Timbers were suddenly back at close to full strength as the team warmed up this morning before practice was closed to the press.

Injuries and Absences

Diego Valeri was back at practice today after taking yesterday off due to the ongoing soreness that he has been suffering from since picking up an injury in the Timbers last game against Real Salt Lake at the end of August. It has been reported that Valeri has a sports hernia, although Caleb Porter refused to comment on the specifics of his injury.

Darlington Nagbe, who was not in the warmups yesterday but did practice according to Porter, was back warming up with the team today. Ben Zemanski, who was also absent from yesterday's warmups, was back today as well.

Maximiliano Urruti, who was taken out of the Timbers' 1-0 win over the Seattle Sounders in the 84' with an injury, was on the sidelines of practice for the second day in a row.

Ryan Johnson and Alvas Powell, both of whom were away on international duty for Jamaica for the last week, were back in warmups today.

Rodney Wallace, who was with the Costa Rican National Team but did not see the field for Los Ticos, was not at practice for the warmups, but did arrive at the practice facility just at training was being closed to the press.

David Horst, who went out of the Timbers' reserve match against the Sounders on Monday with an injury, was not at practice today. According to the Timbers' twitter account, Horst is expected to be out of practice for two weeks.
