Tobin Heath was placed on injury listing, expected to miss the remainder of NWSL season

Soccer star Tobin Heath has been placed on the season-ending injury list, the OL Reign announced Friday. Heath underwent successful surgery on her left knee on Monday, and her recovery timeline is expected to extend beyond the 2022 National Women’s Soccer League season, according to the team.

“Although this wasn’t an easy decision, we know this was the right decision,” OL Reign coach Laura Harvey said in a statement. “We always want to be mindful of our athletes and their health, so we wanted to be sure that Tobin will have the proper time needed to fully prepare for a successful return on the pitch. Despite missing time this season, Tobin has helped our younger players tremendously with her veteran mindset and experience.”
