After suffering a concussion in his Leeds United debut on February 18, US international winger Robbie Rogers has received medical clearance to resume playing

"He has received clearance and resumed training," Rogers agent Shaun Higgins told YA on Tuesday.

Rogers left MLS in January after five seasons with the Columbus Crew where he won an MLS Cup in 2008. That year he was also voted to the league's best XI. The following year in 2009 he helped lead the Crew to a Supporters Shield.

Rogers secured a British Work permit and formally joined Leeds United in January. In his league debut against Doncaster he entered the game as a substitute in the 79th minute but was forced to leave in stoppage time after a collision left him with a concussion.

Leeds United currently sit in 10th place in the English Championship. This Sunday they visit fourth place Middlesbrough.
