Leeds United have not had lady luck on their side this season when it comes down to injuries.
The Whites have seen a number of players spend time on the treatment table as it appears that they can not get through a week without having a new concern arise.
Patrick Bamford is a long-term concern, whilst the likes of Kemar Roofe and Pablo Hernandez have only just been able to make their returns.
Gaetano Berardi and Luke Ayling appear to have been struck down recently with new problems and it now appears that Marcelo Bielsa has another one to deal with.
In the Under-23’s match against Hull City on Monday afternoon, it appears that Ryan Edmondson is the newest concern for the Whites, according to Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Joe Urquhart on Twitter.
Edmondson has to go off… was clearly struggling after a clash with Roberts earlier and he just happened to be in the right place at the right time to open the scoring for Leeds. Nicell on. #lufc https://t.co/zLWJGADcaK

The striker, who had scored in the game, was forced off the pitch in the first half having failed to shake the knock he had picked up.
Leeds and Bielsa just can not appear to catch a break at the moment when it comes down to injuries.
Although Edmondson’s is unlikely to have caused the manager too many headaches, he has been used this season within the first-team and is an exceptionally bright talent that is regarded highly at Thorp Arch.
There is no timescale on his injury as of yet, however, there will be many fingers crossed that he is not out for too long, just in case they do need him to come into the first-team once again in the near future.
