Alex Morgan Out For Rest Of NWSL Season With Knee Injury

The Orlando Pride announced that Morgan has been shut down for the rest of the year.

The Orlando Pride will be without star forward Alex Morgan for the remainder of the NWSL season. The Pride are currently in last place with only 14 points from 21 games and an overall record of four wins, two draws and 15 defeats. 

With only three games left in the regular season, the Pride will have to manage without Morgan as she’s suffered a patella stress reaction in her right knee. This has been a lingering injury that started during her USWNT World Cup campaign, and although it’s difficult to lose a player of her caliber to injury, the Pride staff believed it was in Morgan’s best interest to take the end of the season off to rehab and come back stronger.

Morgan appeared in six World Cup matches, tallied 490 minutes and scored six goals to go along with three assists. Her 2019 NWSL season ends with six appearances, 395 minutes, zero goals and zero assists.  

She played in four games prior to departing for France, and after bringing home a winner’s medal, she played in two more matches until her time with the Pride was cut short following a concussion on Aug. 21.
