The Flash look to kick off the 2014 season on Sunday, but they will do it without star Abby Wambach.

The team says Wambach is out of Sunday's game against the Washington Spirit with a fractured orbital bone. Officials say she suffered that fracture on Thursday during a U.S. Women's National Team game against China.

The team says she is day-to-day at this point. Sunday's game against the Spirit starts at 4 p.m. in Washington.
