Will we see Tyler Roberts this season?
No news is good news, right? #lufc https://t.co/LMlXb7MZgj— Leeds United News (@LeedsUnitedYEP) March 6, 2018
Leeds brought in Tyler Roberts from West Bromwich Albion during the January transfer window, but he hasn’t featured for the club after injuring his shin during training. Leeds head coach Heckingbottom had no update on his status, saying:
We will know more in a couple of weeks and hopefully if I don’t hear anything else it’s because he is still progressing now. Something will only change with Tyler if he starts feeling any pain again because if his bone heals properly and he rehabs well then it will just be a steady progression all the way through.
Honestly, it doesn’t sound like we’ll see Roberts for awhile, and with the playoffs basically out of reach, it’s better he fully recovers instead of risking making any injury worse.
