Barmby was Terry Venables's first signing after being appointed as manager at Leeds, and has been a regular under the former England boss.
However, the former Spurs man picked up a nasty injury in the warm-up - with early indications that he has torn his Achilles tendon.
An injury of this type could lead to a lengthy lay-off for Barmby - with tendon damage notoriously difficult to recover from.
Leeds have already suffered terrible injury problems this season with the likes of Dominic Matteo, Robbie Fowler, Seth Johnson and Danny Mills all missing for The Whites.
