It appears that Leeds United’s Tom Pearce might be injured after all.

There is a photo from Instagram floating around that appears to show Tom Pearce with Tyler Roberts at some event in Leeds, and the young England U20 defender appears to be in a walking cast.
Pearce had not been included in the U23 match recently, leading to speculation that something was up with the former Everton youngster.

Were we aware that he was injured?#lufc
If he’s injured, it would be a surprise because Marcelo Bielsa and the rest of the club has been pretty open about what players are out injured and why they are out. Of course, with Pearce being a fringe first team player this season after the acquisition of Barry Douglas in the summer transfer window, perhaps Bielsa doesn’t think of him as in the first team and therefore doesn’t feel the need to include him in his press conference injury updates.
Well, if Pearce is out injured, then let’s hope he heals up soon.
