United States defender John Anthony Brooks has been ruled out for around three months with a thigh injury sustained on his competitive debut for Wolfsburg.

The Bundesliga side says tests on Tuesday and Wednesday revealed that Brooks tore a tendon in his right thigh in Saturday’s German Cup win over fourth-tier club Eintracht Norderstedt. Brooks went off in the 37th minute after a challenge.

Wolfsburg sporting director Olaf Rebbe says, “That’s a big blow for him and the club. We had closed this hole in our defence.”
