Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus’s scary ankle injury reportedly won’t keep him out of the World Cup — though he won’t have a lot of time to work himself back into game shape. He’s also a near-certainty to miss out on the October 8th Der Klassiker against Bayern Munich. In an update from Sport1, per @iMiaSanMia, BVB expect him back within a month:

Marco Reus ruled out of Germany’s next games against Hungary and England with the ankle injury he suffered yesterday. Nevertheless, according to BVB sporting director Sebastian Kehl, Reus will ‘just’ be out for 3-4 weeks - World Cup participation not in danger.

The upcoming international break will afford Reus time to prepare his Dortmund comeback, but missing out on Hansi Flick’s Germany squad for their final set of big tests before Qatar will still be a blow.

Flick has called up RB Leipzig right-back Benjamin Henrichs to the squad in the Dortmund skipper’s place.
