Leeds United could be set for another injury blow after an image circulated on social media showing Kemar Roofe in a leg brace.

The picture, which was initially seen on Facebook and has been shared by fans on twitter, shows a supporter having a photo with Roofe who has his left leg in a brace.
As well as that, the post says that after speaking to Roofe the player said that the worry is he may have suffered ligament damage.
Obviously, that would be a massive blow to the Whites and it would not only end Roofe’s season but also mean he misses much of the next campaign.
The 26-year-old has been a hugely influential player for Marcelo Bielsa’s side and is Leeds’ top scorer with 14 goals from 26 Championship games so far.
Therefore, he would be a huge loss at a crucial period of the season and it would be the latest injury to disrupt Bielsa’s team.
Roofe last featured on Wednesday, when he played the full game in a 2-1 victory over Swansea at Elland Road.
Firstly, you have to say that this could be an old picture so until there’s official confirmation Leeds fans will hope it’s not true.
However, it clearly doesn’t look good and it would be awful news for the player and the club as he has been superb this season even though he’s struggled in recent weeks.
The Yorkshire side have had terrible luck with injuries and this news will be extremely concerning.
