“I had a short bout of tendinitis after that game in my left foot which quickly recovered and I’m back at 100%,” he wrote. “Then, I went back to pre-season with revolution and training before playing my last pre-season friendly. Early in that match a reckless and unnecessary pre-season challenge emerged that left me with a small fracture in my right foot.”
Revolution coach Bruce Arena said March 8 that Turner was injured during a practice game at Los Angeles FC. New England said she was during a match behind closed doors on February 9.
