Its been a long two months but Carli Lloyd has finally been cleared for contact and will be joining the Western New York Flash for training tomorrow.
Lloyd, who has been out of action since her March 6th shoulder injury while playing in the Algarve Cup, said in an earlier interview with the NWSLNews.com that “as soon as I found out it was broken, I had to completely shut down for four weeks. Really, the only thing I could do was ride a bike.”
After being “shut down for four weeks” and then working on rehabbing her left shoulder, Lloyd was given the all clear on Tuesday by doctors working for the U.S. Soccer Federation for contact play.
No word from the Flash if Lloyd will be available for this Saturday’s match versus FC Kansas City however she did tell the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle that she’ll be “ready to go.”
