Alex Morgan has mild MCL sprain
U.S. women's national team star Alex Morgan has a mild MCL sprain in her left knee, her NWSL team said Thursday.
The Portland Thorns say Alex Morgan will miss two to four weeks. The NWSL playoffs begin Aug. 24.
Morgan was hurt 8 minutes into a Thorns game Wednesday as she collided with Boston Breakers defender Jazmyne Avant.
"It's a relief that there is no significant damage to my knee," Morgan said. "I will do everything in my power between now and Aug. 24 in order to be available for the playoffs and to win the championship."
