Just a little cumulative post here on some Sporting Kansas City things that were probably too short to put into one post. So I mashed all three of them together in an attempt to compensate for SKC's first bye week of the season.
Seth Sinovic Out Injured for Less Than Two Weeks
The first little bit of news I want to bring to your attention is that Sporting KC's starting left back Seth Sinovic fractured his hand in SKC's 1-0 loss to the Portland Timberson Saturday.

Peterson Joseph(aka "Haitian Xavi) Back In KC After Family Issues
Sporting KC center attacking mid Peterson Joseph has returned to KC after having to deal with family issues(the passing of his mother) back home for over three months. A lot of people wouldn't even have noticed his absence though seeing as Joseph has been almost completely limited to Sporting KC's reserve team.
Even so, he looked good in SKC's reserve loss on Tuesday and should Graham Zusi ever succumb to injury Joseph will probably be the most capable candidate step in for the American international.
Jairo Peixoto Leaves KC
Former Sporting KC trialist Jairo Peixoto has left Kansas City, a Sporting KC official tells me. The former Santos FC youth player had played in SKC's win over the Chicago Fire two weeks ago. Prompting me to contact his agent to get a better grasp on the situation. I broke news that Jairo was expected to sign with Sporting, or so his agent said. Obviously with his departure though, it seems very unlikely we'll see the center back in an SKC shirt. Maybe Jairo's agent was just trying to stir up some attention for his player...
