MOST COMMENTED

[NWSL] The news that two-time Olympic gold-medalist Amy Rodriguez is pregnant caught the Seattle Reign by surprise. A-Rod is expected to miss the inaugural NWSL season, adding to Coach Laura Harvey's challenges. Seattle will also be without Megan Rapinoe and Teresa Noyola, who are playing in Europe and will miss the start of the season.

Rapinoe (Lyon) and Noyola (ADO Den Haag) are not expected to join Reign FC until June.

“Amy’s pregnancy came as quite a surprise and has introduced some challenges that we are now beginning to work through,” said Harvey. “We expect a huge boost mid-season when Rapinoe and Noyola join the club, but in the meantime we will address the gaps created by the absences of Rodriguez, Rapinoe and Noyola through free agent signings and the supplemental draft next week.”

In light of the news, Reign general manager Amy Carnell said the club was speaking with NWSL about potential adjustments to the cap and roster.

“We expect a decision will be announced by the league very soon," she said.
