Morales: I feel like a rookie

Javier Morales believes he'll play 20 to 30 minutes Wednesday against the Chicago Fire, but he'd be happy with five, too.

"I feel like a rookie," the Real Salt Lake midfielder said after practice Tuesday. "I remember when I played my first [professional] game, almost 10 years. Now I have the same feeling."

Although Morales was on the 18-man active roster for Saturday's game at D.C. United, there was little reason to play him considering the situation. Morales has been receiving and giving spirited tackles in practice and appears ready.

"We're looking to get him involved at some point," RSL coach Jason Kreis said. "It is a necessity to get him going again so that he can figure for us down the stretch and into the playoffs."
