“Words cannot describe how disappointed I am to not be able to compete in Sochi,” Lysacek said in a statement. “While none of my past injuries have sidelined me quite like this one, I remained determined to regain my health and skate again.”

Based on his statement, it appears the 28-year-old Lysacek won’t be retiring.
