RB Leipzig American midfielder, Tyler Adams is edging closer to his return after an extended injury that made him miss the Concacaf Gold Cup this summer.

Adams' RB Leipzig coach, Julian Nagelsmann revealed he expects the US international to be back at full training within the next two to three weeks.

The 20-year-old midfielder was given a six to eight-week recovery timetable due to acute groin issues; however, Adams has been sidelined since the summer after he missed international duty with the USMNT for the Gold Cup.

Since then, the player has been in rehabilitation and is finally getting close to being back to training.

"We're regulating and structuring his training because we don't want his body to have a bad reaction, sometimes we increase the intensity and then see how the body copes with that. If you see a reaction, then you take things down a notch. There's nothing unusual about that; it's the normal procedure," stated Adams' coach.

According to Bundesliga's official website, Adams is hopefully going to be back to 100 percent in 2-3 weeks, but he'll need a few weeks training before returning in the Bundesliga, as said by coach Nagelsmann.
