Pablo Ricchetti feels ready to play after joining the FC Dallas team for training late in the week.

"(My ankle) is good," Ricchetti said. "I feel it a little bit sometimes but I can play, I can run and I can cut inside. I will be ready. I started to run on Monday. I was running with a therapist and today was my first day back with the team. Yes. I want to (play against Seattle). I don't know if I will play but I am able to play."

FCD head coach Schellas Hyndman is happy to have Ricchetti back on the training field.

"It's good to see him out there," Hyndman said. "Both John Ellinger and I made the comment today that he looks like he's back to self. When he got hurt at Chivas, he was very gingerly with his steps and his passes. He got re-injured (the following week) against D.C. United, so (he got) this two weeks to get a little bit of a recovery. His feeling is that he's ready to play."
