Alex Morgan injures knee
U.S. women's national team star Alex Morgan was carried off the pitch on a stretcher Wednesday after suffering a left knee injury.
Morgan was hurt as she collided with Breakers defender Jazmyne Avant, 10 minutes into the Portland Thorns' 2-1 loss to the Boston Breakers in an NWSL match.
Morgan was seen walking at halftime with a large brace on her left leg, according to NBCSports.com.
The Thorns said Morgan will undergo further evaluation Thursday.
