Tyler Adams injury update: USMNT captain out until February after second surgery

Just days after Tyler Adams made his comeback after six months out injured, the USMNT captain suffered a setback and underwent his second hamstring surgery of 2023.

Bournemouth confirmed on Friday that Adams had another operation two weeks ago. The 24-year-old will be out of action until at least February, meaning he will miss the USMNT’s CONCACAF Nations League quarterfinal tie against Trinidad and Tobago, which will serve as a de facto qualifier for Copa America 2024.

After making the move from Leeds Untied in the summer, Adams made his Bournemouth debut last month as the Cherries beat Stoke City 2-0 in the League Cup.

It was his first outing since March earlier this year, as he had worked so hard to recover from a torn hamstring he suffered in the spring while playing for Leeds United.

Speaking after Bournemouth’s 4-0 home defeat to Arsenal on Saturday, Cherries boss Andoni Iraola was asked why Tyler Adams was not in Bournemouth’s 18-man squad for the game.

This is not an update that USMNT fans will want to hear.

“I don’t know what to call it, a setback, but he is not feeling well,” Iraola said, via the Bournemouth Echo. “He has been out for a lot of time, so we have to reassess, to reset, to take the good decisions, thinking in everything.

“It is true that he is going to be out for some time, for sure. I think it’s the same area. I couldn’t tell you if it’s exactly the same point, but it’s true that it’s his hamstring that he is not feeling well.”
