NWSL Injury Report: Houston's Kristie Mewis out for season with knee injury

The Houston Dash lost midfielder Kristie Mewis for the rest of the 2018 NWSL season with a knee injury.

She suffered a left knee sprain in the first half of Sunday's 3-2 win over the Washington Spirit in Houston. She had scored two goals in her last three games after being moved back to midfielder from defender.

Mewis started every game for the Dash since being acquired in a trade with the Chicago Red Stars for Morgan Brian last August.

That trade came after she played one game with the Red Stars. In 2017, she was traded twice in nine days and three times in nine months.

Mewis led her hometown Boston Breakers with six goals in 2015 but she only scored once in 2016 and was shipped to Washington in the massive deal that also landed the Spirit the No. 1 spot in the allocation rankings that it used to sign Mallory Pugh.

Mewis' 15 U.S. caps were all earned under Tom Sermanni.
