[MLS INJURY REPORT] Two of MLS's most influential players, Seattle's Mauro Rosales and Toronto FC's Torsten Frings, face layoffs, while Vancouver's Darren Mattocks, one of MLS's most promising rookies, has been sidelined indefinitely after suffering burns in a cooking accident on Sunday.

Seattle coach Sigi Schmid confirmed that Rosales, the 2011 MLS Newcomer of the Year, will miss Friday's game against Houston with a sprained right knee suffered in Saturday's 3-1 win against Toronto FC. A different knee injury hampered Rosales at the end of the 2011 season.

The new depth the Sounders have with the offseason addition of young Dane Christian Sivebaek looks even bigger now as he can play on the wings and replace Rosales.

Mattocks suffered burns to his upper right arm and shoulder and was admitted to a local hospital, where he is currently being treated and assessed.

"It was an unfortunate accident, but Darren is handling everything well and remains in good spirits," Whitecaps head coach Martin Rennie. "We will have a better understanding on the recovery time and course of action later in the week, but we fully anticipate Darren to make a complete recovery in due time."

Frings was also injured in Saturday's game in Seattle, straining his right hamstring. He could miss 4-6 weeks, meaning he'll be unable for the Concacaf Champions League semifinals against Santos of Mexico.

His play at center back was a big reason TFC was able to hold off the Los Angeles Galaxy in the Concacaf quarterfinals.
