Joevin Jones not in starting lineup or on bench as Sounders face LA Galaxy

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.
