Sky Blue FC defender Mandy Freeman will likely miss the 2019 NWSL season with an Achilles tendon injury, the club announced on Tuesday.

The player suffered a complete tear of the achilles tendon in her right ankle during a preseason training session, the club said. She has already undergone reconstructive surgery after evaluation from the team’s medical staff and is currently recovering. Considering the long-term nature of the injury, it is unclear when Freeman might return, though the club expects she will not be part of the 2019 campaign.

On Twitter, Freeman said she was “sad to miss this season but looking forward to cheering on my teammates,” adding that she was in “recovery mode.”

Freeman was a regular in the Sky Blue lineup last season, featuring in 21 of the team’s 24 games in 2018. She played the same amount of games in 2017, her rookie season. Freeman was drafted from the University of Southern California, and was the 10th overall pick in that year’s NWSL College Draft.
