Portland Timbers Training Quotes and Notes: Yesterday is Today

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Wondering what happened at practice yesterday? It was closed, but here is the rundown of who was there...

Sorry I did not get this posted yesterday and that it is a little bare bones, folks, but I had to get to work. The training report on this morning's practice should be up in the early afternoon as usual.

Injuries and Absences

Jake Gleeson and Dylan Tucker-Gangnes were both out kicking the ball around on the training pitch yesterday as they continue their recovery from concussions suffered in practice. On Wednesday, Caleb Porter gave an anticipated timetable of four to five days for their return as they follow the return to play protocols for a concussion.

After sitting out most of practice on Wednesday with a sore hamstring, Ben Zemanski was back in training yesterday and should be good to go for tomorrow's game against the LA Galaxy.

The Timbers missing training due to international duty; Rodney Wallace, Frederic Piquionne, and Will Johnson; were still absent from practice yesterday. However, according to Mike Donovan (@TheMikeDonovan), Piquionne has tweeted on his protected account that he is back in town and will train with the Timbers this morning.

Alvas Powell was still not with the team yesterday as they wait on his international transfer certificate and P1 visa to be confirmed.

Trialists and Guest Players

The Timbers featured four guest players from their U-23s today. David Meves, Bryan Gallego, Eric Miller, and Jose Rihas all trained with the team this morning. While Meves is a regular feature with the first team, Gallego, Miller, and Ribas have not spent much time with the Timbers starters. Miller recently returned from the USA U-20s' failed World Cup run, while Gallego, whose rights as a homegrown player the Timbers secured from New York as a part of their trade for Kosuke Kimura, and Ribas have been regular fixture for the U-23s this season.
