Tyler Adams returns to training with RB Leipzig after extended injury woes

Both RB Leipzig and the US men's national team got a shot of good news on Tuesday morning, as the Bundesliga club revealed that American midfielder Tyler Adams has returned to team training.

The New York Red Bulls Homegrown product has been beset by persistent injury issues over the past several months, mostly driven by an elusive groin problem that has prevented him from taking the field for match action to date this season. Leipzig have prospered thus far despite Adams' absence, climbing to second place in the Bundesliga standings with an 8W-2L-3D record.

If the box-to-box terrier is close to match fitness, he might well have a chance to make a quick return to the RBL lineup. Die Roten Bullen are about to wade into a busy stretch of five matches in two weeks, with league games vs. Hoffenheim, Zack Steffen's Fortuna Dusseldorf, Borussia Dortmund and Augsburg as well as a UEFA Champions League visit to Lyon.
