Preservational factors are one problem . It's like all late Cretaceous
small theropods -
very little in the way of fairly intact fossil material ( Dromaeosaurus ,
Richardoestesia ,Saurornitholestes and Aublysodon ) .There have been some
teeth found that are attributed to juvie tyrannosaurs .Also there's some
juvenile Tarbosaur material ( don't have ref . available , just some pics )
 Hope this helps .
