Andrew Driver, Boniek Garcia 'questionable' on this week's injury report
Health of the squad has been one of the major stories of the Dynamo's season, but two important pieces could be nearing full fitness. Midfielders Andrew Driver and Boniek García are both listed as questionable on this week's injury report, presented by Houston Methodist.
Driver has missed the last two matches after exiting the July 27 match against the Chicago Fire early with Achilles tendonitis. García was limited to a substitute appearance in last weekend's loss to Real Salt Lake with a right abdominal strain.
Calen Carr (left knee) and Alex Dixon (left hamstring strain) join the two wingers as questionable for Saturday's match against the Seattle Sounders (8 p.m. CT; CSN Plus).
Forward Omar Cummings (left MCL sprain) and goalkeeper Tyler Deric (right thumb fracture) are the only Dynamo players listed as out for the match.
For Seattle, Alex Caskey (right ankle impingement), Josh Ford (right patella fracture), Phillip Lund (right plantar fasciitis) and Steve Zakuani (athletic pubalgia) will miss the weekend's matchup.
Designated Player Obafemi Martins is listed as questionable after spraining his ankle in last weekend's 1-0 win at Toronto FC, but the forward did not make the trip to Houston.
