Lloyd sidelined with shoulder injury

[USA WOMEN] After goalies Hope Solo (wrist surgery) and Jill Loyden (broken bone in her left hand), the U.S. women's national team has lost U.S. midfielder Carli Lloyd, who suffered a non-displaced greater tuberosity fracture of the left shoulder during the USA's opening match of the Algarve Cup in Portugal and will be out of action for approximately 6-8 weeks. She'll miss Wednesday's Algarve Cup final against Germany (TV: pay-per-view, 1 p.m. ET) and the upcoming matches at Germany and the Netherlands in April.

Lloyd left during the second half of the opening against Iceland at the Algarve Cup and was held out of the USA's two other group games. An MRI revealed the break, which will not surgery.

Lloyd was allocated to Western New York Flash of the new National Women's Soccer League, which begins play in April, but will likely miss at least the first month of the NWSL season.

"Although it's an unfortunate circumstance," the 2012 Olympic gold-medalist said. "I've been through injuries before and have come back even stronger. I'm disappointed that I'll be missing some National Team events and some league games, but as soon as my shoulder allows, I'll be back and ready to compete."
