“The checks we did on Saturday showed no fracture. It is a lateral ligament injury. Marco will be out for three to four weeks.”
Reus, who was called up for the Nations League matches against Hungary and England this month, sat out Germany’s 2014 World Cup-winning run after being injured in the final warm-up game before their departure to Brazil.
He had also missed Euro 2016 due to injury. The World Cup starts on Nov. 20 in Qatar.
