Hope Solo will not be hitting the field -- any field -- in the near future.
The Seattle Reign FC of the National Women's Soccer League announced that the 35-year-old goalkeeper has been "granted a personal leave," and a return date has not been disclosed.
Solo's leave from the team comes just days after she was suspended for six months from the U.S. Soccer organization for conduct that they said was "counter to the organization's principles."
During an interview with Sports Illustrated's Grant Wahl, Solo referred to the Swedish team as "cowards" after they beat the U.S. team at the Summer Olympics in Rio, Brazil. "I thought that we played a courageous game," she said. "But I also think we played a bunch of cowards. The best team did not win today."
Solo,who was also suspended for 30 days in 2015, will not be eligible for the national team again until February.
