U.S. Olympian Polina Edmunds will miss her second straight scheduled Grand Prix event, NHK Trophy in two weeks, due to continued recovery from a right foot injury.

Edmunds, 18 and the 2016 U.S. silver medalist, withdrew before the world championships last March and last week’s Rostelecom Cup with a bone bruise in her right foot.

Edmunds last competed at the U.S. Championships in January.
