The Chicago Red Stars announced today via Twitter that Amy LePeilbet will be sidelined for 6-8 months following an upcoming ACL surgery and the team will receive an option to sign a 5th free agent.

LePeilbet previously tore her ACL during the 2006 Peace Queen Cup in South Korea and took off the 2007 and 2008 National Team seasons to recover. She returned to the pitch and the National Team in 2009 and had been a mainstay on the team ever since.
