U.S. women's hockey star Brianna Decker will miss the remainder of the 2022 Winter Olympics following a devastating lower-body injury suffered in the Americans' first game of the tournament, but that doesn't mean she won't still be a crucial part of the squad as the Games continue.

Decker took to Twitter Saturday to provide an update on her condition and ensure fans that, while she won't be playing in any more games at these Olympics, she'll still be very much involved as the team looks to defend its gold medal from PyeongChang.

In their first full game without Decker in the lineup, the U.S. women shut out the ROC by a score of 5-0. Their next game comes Sunday morning against a winless Switzerland team before squaring off against Canada Monday night at 11:10 p.m. ET.
