United States goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris will have left knee surgery on Dec. 3 and miss 4-6 weeks, U.S. Soccer announced Monday.
Harris has a “small tear” in her left lateral meniscus, according to U.S. Soccer, and the injury has bothered her since June.
Harris has two caps for the U.S., both of which were earned this year. In 18 games for the Washington Spirit this year, Harris gave up 33 goals. The Spirit finished last in the NWSL with 14 pts. from 22 games.
She played with Swedish club Tyresö this fall and helped them earn a place in the quarterfinals of the UEFA Women’s Champions League. It is unclear if Harris will play in the next stages of the Champions League. The quarterfinals are set for late March, just weeks before the start of the 2014 NWSL season.
