The Jets will be without American midfielder Caprice Dydasco this season after confirmation she suffered a serious knee injury on Monday.

The 23-year-old Hawaiian went down in the first half of Washington Spirit’s penalty shootout loss to Western New York Flash in the National Women’s Soccer League final and was taken by stretcher from the field.

An MRI scan revealed she had torn her anterior cruciate and medial ligaments and her meniscus.
