Christen Press is still on the road to recovery.

While her name is no longer on Angel City’s season-ending injury list, the USWNT forward took to social media Thursday to give an update on her status. In doing so, she indicated that she still has a little bit of work to do before she returns.

Press tore her ACL in June of 2022 and has not played since. In July of last year, she revealed that she was about to undergo a fourth surgery for the injury.

In the months following, ACFC coach Becki Tweed noted that the forward’s goal was to return this year. Currently, Press is on the team’s preseason roster but hasn’t returned to training.

“Hi folks! As you’ll see, I’m still not yet in team training,” Press wrote in a social media post. “Working hard everyday to get back and get ready for the season. Excited for what 2024 will bring! Thanks for the love… please keep it coming.”

Teams announced their schedules on Thursday, with Angel City’s season opener coming on March 16th against Bay FC.
