Lindsey Vonn not ruling out quick return
The American skier will skip next week's competition, but isn't ruling out a return in a couple weeks.
Lindsey Vonn announced Friday that she would not be competing in next week's World Cup in Beaver Creek, Colo.; however, she did leave the door open for a return just two weeks from now.
According to the Associated Press, Vonn's publicist, Lewis Kay, said that the world champion has not ruled out returning to the slopes just a few weeks after re-injuring her right knee.
"Lindsey is recovering very quickly from abrasions to her face and contusions to her shoulder blade,” Dr. William Sterett of the United States ski team said in a statement, according to the New York Times. “Beyond that, she has a stable knee with an MRI finding of a partial tear of her ACL graft. With therapy, she is progressing well while not losing any of the strength she worked so hard to achieve."
Back in February, Vonn tore both her ACL and MCL and broke her tibia. On Wednesday it was announced that her fall on Tuesday caused a partial re-tear of her ACL.
