Bayern Munich’s backline is a bit of a revolving door of injuries and ailments at the moment.
Benjamin Pavard is expected to return this weekend from his COVID-19 induced hiatus, while Jerome Boateng has rejoined team training after what looked liked a potentially scary injury over the weekend.
Now, Niklas Süle is training individually for undisclosed reason. Sky reporter Torben Hoffmann was there to capture some of the action:

There were rumors floating yesterday that Süle was working out individually, but nothing was confirmed until Hoffmann’s tweet today. Interestingly, Süle was not listed on FCBayern.com’s injury round-up either.
In addition to the aforementioned players, Tanguy Nianzou and Malik Tillman worked out individually as well:

Continue only individually! #Nianzou and #Tillmann do laps together. After the international break, the Frenchman should be back with the whole squad @FCBayern work out. @SkySportNewsHD @SkySportDE
There was no word on Douglas Costa, but as of Tuesday, the Brazilian was still working through an individual program.
