The team announced Wednesday that Midfielder Sam Mewis will not play for the Kansas City Current in 2024.

More Details

Mewis, a free agent, has not appeared in a game for Kansas City since March 2022 as she continues to rehab a chronic knee injury.

Mewis’ initial cartilage injury occurred in 2017, after which she returned to play in 2021, winning multiple National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) Championships and the 2019 World Cup.

Dorsey joined the NWSL in 2018 and won Rookie of the Year in her first professional season.

Dorsey took time away from Gotham starting in April 2023, which she said on her Instagram came from a desire to focus on her mental health.

Mental health leave is protected in the NWSL's CBA, and "it gave me the perspective and energy and confidence I needed," Dorsey said.
