US national team midfielder Horan sidelined with hip injury

CHICAGO (AP) Midfielder Lindsey Horan will miss the U.S. women's national team's upcoming training camp and matches against Russia because of a strained hip flexor.

Coach Jill Ellis is calling up 17-year-old midfielder Jaelin Howell to replace Horan. Horan will remain with her club, the Portland Thorns, and rehab her injury.

Howell was a starter in the center midfield for the U.S. at the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup in Jordan last fall. She is currently with the U.S. under-23 women's national team in Portland, Oregon.
