Brian, Sauerbrunn to miss training camp due to injuries

CHICAGO — Midfielder Morgan Brian and defender Becky Sauerbrunn will miss the U.S. women's soccer training camp ahead of a Jan. 21 exhibition against Denmark at San Diego.

Brian will remain with Lyon in France following nagging injuries, the U.S. Soccer Federation said Thursday. Sauerbrunn has a stress reaction in her left foot that necessitates several weeks of rest.

The roster:

Goalkeepers: Jane Campbell (Houston), Adrianna Franch (Portland), Ashlyn Harris (Orlando), Alyssa Naeher (Chicago)

Defenders: Abby Dahlkemper (NC), Tierna Davidson (Stanford), Sofia Huerta (Chicago), Meghan Klingenberg (Portland), Kelley O'Hara (Utah), Casey Short (Chicago), Taylor Smith (NC), Emily Sonnett (Portland)

Midfielders: Julie Ertz (Chicago), Lindsey Horan (Portland), Carli Lloyd (Houston), Allie Long (Portland), Andi Sullivan (Stanford)

Forwards: Crystal Dunn (Chelsea, England), Savannah McCaskill (South Carolina), Alex Morgan (Orlando), Christen Press (Chicago), Mallory Pugh (Washington), Megan Rapinoe (Seattle), Lynn Williams (NC)
