Orlando Pride defender Ali Krieger has suffered a right medial collateral ligament (MCL) injury in her right knee and will miss 4-6 weeks, the team announced on Wednesday. Krieger was injured on Saturday night in the Pride’s 5-2 win over the Chicago Red Stars.
Krieger went down in the 66th minute of play just a few minutes after earning an assist on a Sydney Leroux diving header-goal in the 61st minute.
Krieger has recorded three assists over the course of her two seasons in Orlando. She has also started and played every minute of every game for the Pride.
