Osborne Update

U.S. midfielder Leslie Osborne had surgery this morning on both her left torn ACL and her left ankle. She figured she'd go for the two-for-one as she was already on the operating table, right?Needless to say, her left side will be out of commission for a while, but the WNT Blog would like to report that everything went very well and that she was feeling good this afternoon. The ankle will be in a cast for about four weeks and her knee will be in a brace for 2-3 weeks for the first part of her rehabilitation. She'll spend about two weeks in Northern California where she had the surgeries before coming back down to SoCal to continue her rehab and start the road back to the National Team and the new pro league. Every journey begins with the first step...She'll be taking hers shortly...well, in about a month.

Glad to hear everything went well; still a shame for this to happen so close to the Olympics..she'll be missed when it all starts!

Anyway, hope she gets better on schedule or even sooner. I know I can't wait to see her on the field again once she's healed up!
