U.S. Women's National Team star Sam Mewis remains sidelined indefinitely after another surgery on her injured right knee.
Mewis announced the news on social media on Monday.
Mewis, 30, initially underwent surgery on her knee after the 2021 Olympics. She hasn't played since. She was named U.S. Soccer female player of the year in 2020 as one of the world's top midfielders.
Mewis joined the NWSL's Kansas City Current via trade after her initial surgery in 2021. She's yet to play for the team, which announced on Monday that it signed her to a new contract through the 2023 season.
"Midfielder Sam Mewis continues to recover from her progressive injury to her right leg," the statement reads. "In support of Mewis, the club has bought out her previous contract and signed her to a new contract through the 2023 season that is focused on her recovery and future.”
