Lindsey Horan is the latest player to be ruled out of United States camp through injury. The Portland Thorns midfielder has a hip strain and will remain in the Rose City to rehab. Horan joins Morgan Brian on the sidelines for the camp. Brian was pulled earlier this week due to an MCL tweak suffered during the SheBelieves Cup. Julie Johnston is also missing camp to get married and become Julie Ertz.

Jaelin Howell, 17, has been called to camp as a replacement for Horan and Brian. Jill Ellis did not announce a replacement at the time Brian was taken out of consideration. Howell, who plays club soccer with Mallory Pugh in Colorado, started for the U-23s against the Houston Dash on Sunday. She will be available Wednesday night against the Thorns before leaving to join the senior side. The central midfielder will be in her first camp with the full national team.

The camp will lead up to friendly matches against Russia on April 6 in Frisco and April 9 in Houston.
