Leeds: Ben Dinnery shares Tyler Roberts injury details -Leeds United News

Medical expert Ben Dinnery has shared his view on the injury to Leeds United forward Tyler Roberts, Football Insider report.

The Lowdown: Out for the season

Leeds’ injury woes have continued under new manager Jesse Marsch, who brought Roberts on as his third and final substitute against Leicester City on the weekend.

Will Marsch keep Leeds up?

Yes, I still have faith!

No, we are finished!

No, we are finished!

Minutes after coming on, Roberts suffered a serious hamstring injury but stayed on the pitch to help his teammates in the final stages.

It has since been confirmed by the club that the Welshman has had surgery on a ruptured hamstring tendon which is set to keep him out of action for three months.

The Latest: Dinnery’s comments

Dinnery, who contributes for Sky Sports, was analysing Roberts’ injury in a story for Football Insider hours before the clash with Aston Villa. He claimed an avulsion fracture occurred after over-stretching for the ball.

Let's get started... Ezgjan Alioski's country of birth is?

“Watching the game, it looked as though he over-stretched for a bouncing ball.

“That seems to have been when the injury occurred whereas most hamstring injuries normally occur when you’re sprinting.

“When there is that sudden forcible contraction of the hamstring muscle, that can cause what I understand now to be an avulsion fracture.

“That is when the muscle is separated from the bone.

“Because the injury didn’t fit the usual parameters and mechanism, that is why Marsch referenced it as a weird one. It’s not your typical setback.”

The Verdict: Never ending

Rob Price’s treatment table was gradually beginning to quiet down with Patrick Bamford set to make a return this evening against Villa and Liam Cooper back in training. However, he now has a new addition in the treatment room in Roberts, who won’t be available until next season.

The Whites will be desperate to guarantee their Premier League status over the coming months and forget all about the current campaign, due to their ongoing injury issues.

Hopefully, Marsch will have better luck next season when it comes to injuries, but we won’t be seeing Roberts in the final 11 league games.
