Chalupny Will Not Play Against Japan

U.S. defender Lori Chalupny will not play today against Japan in the USA’s second Group G match at the 2008 Olympics. Chalupny, who has a history of concussions, took a blow to the head against Norway in a collision with U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo and was replaced in the 15th minute. Due to her concussion history and after neurologic testing and evaluation, it was decided that she will not participate in this match, but will be revaluated for Tuesday’s match against New Zealand in Shenyang.

Chalupny is a workhorse on the field... my fave type of player. Hope she'll be back soon!
