Tyler Adams has a new injury problem to push through.
After missing nearly half the season with an unshakeable groin problem, Adams will now miss time due to a calf injury, RB Leipzig manager Julian Naglesmann announced.
Adams had returned from his groin injury in late December, making five Bundesliga appearances – all starts. He played the full 90 minutes in the 0-0 draw with Bayern Munich on Sunday that saw Leipzig remain a point back in the title race.
However, Naglesmann announced in his pre-match press conference ahead of Leipzig’s weekend battle with Werder Bremen that Adams has a calf injury suffered Wednesday – presumably in training – ruling out the American from both this weekend’s league match and the Round of 16 Champions League game against Spurs midweek.

Adams, who will turn 21 on Friday, could be in contention to return next weekend in a Bundesliga battle with Schalke, but it is currently unknown how serious the calf injury is. Leg muscle problems vary in severity and recovery time, so more information is likely needed before a timetable can be established.
