According to a report from Bild, Bayern Munich back-up goalkeeper was carted off the practice pitch after a challenge from midfielder Michael Cuisance.

This would be a devastating blow to Ulreich and the team alike if the injury is serious. Ulreich was brought in to be a dependable reserve option to starter Manuel Neuer:

Injury to Sven #Ulreich ! The substitute keeper was badly hit in the right knee -@MichaelCUISANCE with open sole, had slipped away before! Removal with a golf cart. More at @BILD.de!#FCB @FCBayern

A long-term injury to Ulreich would create an issue behind Neuer as Bayern Munich as no veteran depth in the organization. With Alexander Nubel on loan to AS Monaco, Julian Nagelsmann would have to begin looking at youth players like Christian Fruchtl to fill a void on the roster.

This is the second week in a row that Cuisance was involved in an collision that injured a teammate. Last week, the Frenchman and Marcel Sabitzer collided, which saw the Austrian leave training to get medical attention on his hand.
