Javier Morales, Juan Manuel Martinez and Demar Phillips are just the latest three players to be claimed by an apparently minor illness among Real Salt Lake players, but coach Jeff Cassar isn't worried.

All three are likely to play against Tigres on Wednesday, Cassar told reporters after a training session today.

"We just wanted to make sure they went home, rested and hydrated properly," Cassar said. "But everything's going to be fine."

Without the three of them, it would certainly make things difficult for RSL, who face Tigres in the second leg of a CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal match on Wednesday.

The trio did apparently train on Monday without issue.

Kyle Beckerman wasn't worried, either — and he had a suggestion for the three for a quick recovery.

"I think they'll be fine," Beckerman said. "Those guys will get through it. Chicken noodle soup usually works, and they'll be fine."
