Lindsey Vonn crashed and will undergo an MRI on an injured knee in training at Copper Mountain, Colo., on Tuesday, according to Ski Racing magazine.

The report did not say which knee. She blew out her right knee in a crash at the World Championships in February and was expected to return for her first races since on Thanksgiving weekend in Beaver Creek.

The report said the U.S. Ski Team confirmed Vonn crashed and that she was getting checked out.

“No details yet. Yes she did crash and is being evaluated now,” the U.S. Ski Team said in an email.

The U.S. Ski Team said it won’t report more details until after the evaluation when asked if Vonn injured a knee in the crash, if so which knee it was and if she was getting an MRI as reported.
