MOST COMMENTED

[WPS] Carli Lloyd's hard-luck Women's Professional Soccer career continued when Sky Blue FC placed the 2008 Olympic star on the 30-day injured reserve after she suffered a broken ankle in Sunday's 1-0 victory over the Chicago Red Stars, her former club.

Lloyd suffered the injury when she slipped on the surface at Toyota Park and landed awkwardly on her left ankle. She's expected to make a full recovery and return to the field later this season.

Lloyd, who scored the winning goal in the USA's win over Brazil in the 2008 Olympic women's soccer gold-medal game, signed with Chicago for the inaugural WPS season but only had two goals and one assist for the Red Stars and joined her hometown team, Sky Blue FC, as a free agent.

"In terms of a broken ankle, we ended up with the best possible diagnosis regarding Carli's injury," Sky Blue FC General Manager Gerry Marrone said. "When you combine that with the work ethic that Carli possesses, we expect nothing less than a quick and complete recovery."
