2 injury hit teams and the season hasn't even started.
And that's the key. The season hasn't even started.
Remind yourself that tomorrow's match doesn't count.
I might not bother watching it. Going to water park is a better option for me.
Damn Bender has been very unlucky with injuries recently. :/
Not really just recently.
Recently (this and previous season). Our defensive minded midfielders are plagued with injuries.
Not really just then either. But hey, what does it matter?
any news on Hummels from yesterday?
You might already know this, but it is being reported as a neck injury on the BvB site. I haven't seen anything on the severity of it.
i apologize for being vague, was more so looking for severity/timeline
They had more on the German side of the website regarding the injury. If my translation is correct he spent the night in Frankfurt under observation with a skull contusion and spinal sprain. He returned to Dortmund on Thursday. Dr. recommending some time off for him (vague I know). Thats all I have found.
It's possible that he will play on Saturday. This isn't too serious.
I had the same thing once after a Basketball lesson in school. couldn't turn my head to the right anymore. A good classmate of mine said it's no problem and she could fix it and set it right again. End of the story was that I laid on the ground 15 seconds later and had to be driven to hospital. Hummels probably has better physiotherapists
From the BvB website
"We have had a long pre-season and we almost managed to get everyone fit for the start," said Jürgen Klopp in the build-up to Saturday´s first-round DFB Cup tie against FC Oberneuland at the Bremen Weser Stadium. The BVB coach faces selection headaches over Mats Hummels, Neven Subotic and Jakub Blaszczykowski who all returned with injuries, both minor and more serious, from international duty.
"Kuba" had to be substituted after taking a knock to the ankle, just like Mats Hummels who suffered a head contusion and a cervical spine sprain after colliding with Argentina´s Higuain. "Mats had a tough night," said Klopp. But luckily, the BVB added, it was established that the BVB defender suffered no neurological damage. "But I still don´t know how long it will take."
Neven Subotic missed Serbia´s friendly with Ireland after sustaining a thigh muscle injury in Monday´s training. "The final diagnosis is still up in the air, but Neven says it´s not that bad," said Klopp.
"Mario is in top form, but not in top shape yet"
The three players remain a doubt for Saturday´s game, and the BVB coach has already made clear: "If there is the slightest possibility that the injury gets worse when playing, the player will not play." For good reason, as with Felipe Santana, Patrick Owomoyela and Koray Günter, Klopp has another three central defenders at his disposal.
But there is also some good news on the injury front with Sebastian Kehl coming through a full training session on Wednesday. "It looks like he´s ready to return to action," said Klopp, while also pointing out that "an inflammatory injury usually shows symptoms after stress exposure."
And even though Mario Götze had some good moments in Germany´s friendly against Argentina on Wednesday, the BVB coach has ruled out starting the attacking midfielder on Saturday. "Mario is in top form, but not in top shape."
Dortmund: After Groin Surgery
Bender Knocking On The Door – Return To Team Practice
Some of the things you’ll find on Sven Bender’s medical record from last season are a broken jaw, torn ankle ligaments and severe facial bruising. Yet, he was still able to play in 24 matches. The current season also began with an injury for Bender. He had to undergo surgery for a hernia. The 23-year old is familiar with setbacks and the difficult road back. On Tuesday, he made a decisive step back from this latest injury. Bender practiced with the team again.
Four weeks have gone by since Professor Dr. Tomas Hoffmann performed double hernia surgery on the Borussia Dortmund player at Munich’s Maria-Theresia Hospital. Dr. Hoffmann operated on both sides of groin area, inserting plastic netting for reinforcement. Bender had “always noticed something” for quite awhile. But as is his nature, he continued to practice and play on. After the “Liga-Total Cup” in Hamburg, the extent of Bender’s injury was finally detected. A double hernia which required the aforementioned surgical procedure.
On Tuesday, Bender trained with the team again for the first time after his individual training program was raised day by day. Coach Jürgen Klopp would have taken a chance and started Bender in BVB’s 3-0 test match victory over Regionalliga club VfB Hüls if everything had gone super-superbly. However, Klopp backed off because he feels “a few things are missing” with Bender. Specifically, “explosiveness out of rotation and long passing.”
Klopp acknowledges the ball winner “has not lost much” when it comes to conditioning. Klopp said of Bender, “’Manni’ was in exceptional physical condition before the surgery. Thanks to this, the coach decided not force Bender to do “great things endurance-wise” during his rehab.
Now Sven Bender has to wait to see how he comes through team practice. Then, there might even be a chance Sven can be ready for the “Battle of Brothers” with his identical twin Lars. Borussia Dortmund meets Lars Bender’s Bayer Leverkusen team on Saturday at 3:30 PM CET.

Bender and Hummels out for a fortnight,
Kuba out for 6 weeks.
Kuba part is true.
As far as I know, Bender will only be out for a few days.
Keeping Hummels out is more of a precaution. He's expected to be ready for the Derby in two weeks.
Hopefully he is ready for the big CL matches.
That too. However, I'm willing to bet more of us are more concerned with the Derby.
Yep. But the other Bundesliga fans apparently don't understand this...
I try to ignore most of his posts these days, but I couldn't ignore this one. I had to reply.
I get so f#cking SICK of fans of other clubs thinking they can tell us what we should be more concerned about.........
Agreed. It gets worse, especially now that we've actually won something in the CL and might be able to reach the next round. You keep hearing "will they be fit against Real?" and I keep thinking: Who the hell cares about Madrid now?
He's too good for that. He's a fan of the sport, not a club unlike us peasants.
no updates anywhere, whats the story with our lads for real match? goetze gundogan and schmelzer, any of them gonna be fit for the game?
Götze likely fit, Gündogan almost definitely out and Schmelzer probably out.
