LUFC Rogers to go for x-ray on injury
Leeds United boss Neil Warnock said Robbie Rogers was unlucky after lasting just twelve minutes in his first start for the club.
The winger was forced off after making a bright start to the game and he left the ground on crutches after suffering an ankle injury.
Warnock says the player will go for an x-ray on Monday and they are not sure to the extent of the injury at this stage.
Speaking on LUTV Warnock said "We don`t know what the problem is at the moment. We are going to send him for an x-ray on Monday.
"He is unlucky, in my first home game he was injured after a few minutes and he cannot get a run in the team. He had done really well in training, he looked sharp and I wanted to see him in a match situation, so he is very unlucky."
Rogers has suffered a stuttering start to his Leeds career after signing for the club in January.
He made his debut against Doncaster Rovers towards the end of February as a late substitute but he lasted just a few minutes after being knocked out following a clash of heads.
He had to wait until the two games over Easter against Reading and Derby County for his next appearances as a brief substitute and the game with Peterborough was to be his first chance to show his capabilities in a Leeds shirt.
With just three games remaining this season, the American international looks a major doubt for the final two weeks of the season.
