Jonas Hofmann was injured in the 2-1 DFB-Pokal second round defeat against SV Darmstadt yesterday, and will be absent for the time being.
The diagnosis of Jonas Hofmann is as feared, with the Borussia midfielder suffering a dislocated shoulder without further structural damage in the DFB-Pokal game in Darmstadt, meaning that he will be absent for the Foals for the time being. His participation with the Germany national team at the World Cup, which begins on 20th November, is not at risk.
Hofmann landed badly on his left shoulder after a duel around the half an hour mark in the Pokal game yesterday. The Germany international initially carried on playing, but he did not re-emerge from the dressing room for the second half, with Lars Stindl his replacement.
