Sounders’ Jordan Morris works on side, but not certain to play against Atlanta

Coach Brian Schmetzer says his forward is day to day after hurting his ankle.

Sounders forward Jordan Morris is back early from the U.S. Men’s National Team as he tries to get his ankle ready for Friday’s game against Atlanta United.

Morris hurt the ankle a week ago Sunday and did not play for the USMNT in its win over Honduras last Friday. He did some running off to the side on Monday at the Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila, but Sounders coach Brian Schmetzer could not say yet whether he’ll be out there when Atlanta comes to town.

“He’s out here running around a little bit, just seeing our (medical) guys who are taking a look at him,” Schmetzer said. “So, it’s day to day. I’d say day to day. He came back earlier in the year (from training camp in South Carolina last month) and it was day to day so that in itself, that experience helps him. He knows what to feel for and how he feels, so we’ll just keep trying to progress him every day and then hopefully he’s ready to play on Friday.”

Morris was not made available for media interviews.
