USMNT forward Jordan Morris suffers torn ACL
USMNT forward Jordan Morris sustained a torn ACL this weekend while playing for Swansea City in the English Championship.
Morris, who came on as a halftime substitute for Swansea City’s Jamal Lowe in their match against Huddersfield, suffered the injury and was stretchered off wearing a knee brace 20 minutes later. On Monday, Swansea manager Steve Cooper confirmed that the USMNT attacker suffered significant ligament damage to his ACL.
While no time table has been set, the unfortunate injury will end Morris’s time playing for Swansea and keep him out of action for an extended period of time. Morris was recently loaned to Swansea City from his MLS club, Seattle Sounders FC.

"He's had a bad injury unfortunately for him. It's significant ligament damage, ACL. Everything we hoped it wasn't, unfortunately it is.
