Leeds United midfielder Tyler Adams could be ruled out for rest of the season if grade three hamstring injury
Leeds United midfielder Tyler Adams could reportedly be ruled out for the rest of the season if it is a grade three hamstring injury.
Javi Gracia did not confirm the extent of his injury ahead of the Wolves clash and said that he will be going to see a specialist.
While there’s no diagnosis about how serious it is, there’s every possibility of him being out for the rest of the campaign.
Injury expert Ben Dinnery told Give Me Sport, “Ideally, we’re looking at something maybe in early April, but again, just given the nature of that injury, you need to make sure that you when they come back, they stay back and they don’t suffer any kind of recurrence or re-injury that will rule them out of the campaign.
“If an MRI scan reveals something a little bit more sinister, maybe a grade two and beyond, then that timeline can easily be stretched to four to six weeks and even beyond that.
“Obviously, if we were talking about something which would be a grade three, almost a complete rupture, then almost certainly, there would be some kind of surgical intervention and that would end his season. We’d be looking at something in excess of three months.”

Hope for the best
Leeds do not have another player like Adams in their squad and they need him back as soon as possible to increase their chances of staying up.
In his absence, Javi Gracia and Weston McKennie are expected to be the midfield duo and it remains to be seen if either can replicate what Adams does.
He’s not only an important ball carrier, but he’s also important on the defensive side of things as well as he’s throwing himself into tackles and making vital interceptions on the field.
Apart from that, he’s also a leader and one of the most vocal players on the field of play.
Should he be at Leeds for the next three or four years, we won’t be surprised if he’s given the captain’s armband full time as he’s got all the characteristics for the role.
He’s already the United States captain at the age of 23 and he’s only going to get better in the next few years and we hope that he’s still at Elland Road.
