Meissner withdrew Monday, saying she is still feeling pain when she jumps. She hurt herself sprinting on a treadmill about a week ago and aggravated the injury during training.
In a statement from U.S. Figure Skating Meissner said that she is "very disappointed" about not competing in Cleveland.
Meissner was the surprise winner at the 2006 World Championships, and won her first U.S. title the following year. She has struggled since, finishing seventh at last year's nationals.
