England Wins 1-0 in Women's World Cup but Loses Midfielder Keira Walsh to Knee Injury, and Dolphin's Jalen Ramsey Set for Surgery Today

ESPN reports that England scored a 1-0 win over Denmark in the Women's World Cup, but that midfielder Keira Walsh was taken off the pitch on a stretcher with a possible knee injury in the first half. Walsh is considered one of the team's best players and her absence may impact England's chances of winning the World Cup. Elsewhere in the tournament, China defeated Haiti, also 1-0, and Argentina tied 2-2 with South Africa.

On the subject of injuries, the Miami Dolphins' Jalen Ramsey is set for surgery today, according to the Associated Press. A six-time Pro Bowl cornerback, Ramsey "suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee at the end of Thursday's practice and is expected to miss the start of the regular season." Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel commented:

"It really moved a lot of people. He first let everybody know how much he appreciated this team, how this team has accepted him, how he has been in the league a little bit and how he knows what we're doing here, in his opinion, is special, for his position group not to waiver, and exuded all the confidence that he had in that position group."
