Tyler Adams is injured again

Tyler Adams has been injured again, suffering a knee injury to his lateral ligament in training this week and sitting out Bundesliga leader RB Leipzig's 2-1 win over Hertha Berlin on Saturday.

The 21-year-old midfielder will be re-evaluated next week.

Injuries kept Adams out of the lineup for most of the last months of first half season in Germany and limited him to 14 Bundesliga appearances in 2019-20. He was mostly used off the bench on the right side of midfield, scoring his first goal for Leipzig to give it a 2-1 win over Atletico Madrid in the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League.

For the start of the 2020-21 season, Adams returned to the starting spot in central midfield, where he excelled after his arrival at Leipizg in 2019.

If his injury is confirmed, that would surely keep Adams out of the U.S. national team camp in November. His only appearance for the USA under new head coach Gregg Berhalter came in a 1-0 win over Ecuador in March 2019.

    We expect great things from both TA and CP, but their frequent injuries are worrisome and do not bode well for preparation ahead of Qatar.

    At least Leipzig and Dortmund/Chelsea have some creative attacking in the final 3rd--not sure what Sargent should be doing after i watched the WBremen vs Hoffenheim snooze-fest. With all those injuries piling up for Kohfeldt and the plodding game plan, Sargent should search for a more attacking team before all that hacking he receives from opponents results in injuries that will render him ineffective. WBremen will want to resign him next summer, but he (and Rashica) should move on. Kohfledt is too worried about grinding out points to focus much on the final 3rd and you can see it on the pitch every week.
