USMNT captain Tyler Adams out indefinitely with hamstring injury

Leeds midfielder Tyler Adams will be out indefinitely with a hamstring injury, and manager Javi Gracia said the American will not be easy to replace.

Adams, 24, was ruled out of Leeds’ game at Wolverhampton on Saturday after picking up the injury this week in training. The U.S. captain will also miss the next few games with his national team.

“Tyler is different from the others. There is no one like Tyler,” Gracia said of the defensive midfielder.

The Spanish manager did not offer a timetable for Adams’ return as the club fight to stay in the Premier League.

“Tyler is injured and at the moment he is with a specialist and we will see how long he is out of the team,” Gracia said. “We have other players. We all know Tyler is a key player for us, but we have to manage with the squad we have.”

Weston McKennie and Marc Roca are options to fill in, as are 19-year-old Darko Gyabi and 17-year-old Archie Gray, Gracia said.

“These are the players who usually train with us in that position,” the former Watford boss said on Thursday.

Leeds are one place above bottom-placed Southampton, but the bottom six teams are separated by just three points.
