The Sounders are sitting out Joevin Jones for Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Galaxy, likely for disciplinary reasons after he left the team early a few weeks ago without permission and flew to his native Trinidad to prepare for World Cup qualifiers
(UPDATE: A source confirmed Joevin Jones is indeed sitting out Sunday night’s game as punishment for leaving the team without permission a few weeks ago. )
Unless there is a health issue we are unaware of — and we are — the team is sitting Jones on a night it is also without left back Nouhou after his red card versus Portland and automatic suspension.
This is a bit of a risk the Sounders are taking, since they now trail the Timbers by two points in the standings and really do need a win over the struggling Galaxy.
Victor Rodriguez gets a start out on the left flank, while Clint Dempsey is in the middle despite some speculation he might be rested following national team duty.
