Right back Kofi Sarkodie, who has started all three Houston Dynamo MLS matches this season is listed as questionable on the latest injury report.

The reason is listed as concussion.

No further details are available at this time.

If Sarkodie doesn't suit up for the match against the Earthquakes, I'd expect Warren Creavalle to continue his successful role at spot starting.
