A report appearing in the Leipziger Volkszeitung suggests that RB and German national team striker Timo Werner will have to undergo further examinations for the ankle injury that knocked him out early of last night's Champions' League tie against Shakhtar Donetsk.

The medical procedure would not be on Werner's docket if the club were not concerned that the 26-year-old might have fractured something. While results could most certainly still be negative, Schäfer writes that Werner's availability for the weekend fixture against Hoffenheim is "extremely unlikely".
Leipzig still have Freiburg and Bremen to play in the remaining two league rounds before the World Cup break. Werner would, under normal circumstances, be immediately due in Hansi Flick's German national team camp as soon as Bundesliga play concludes. RB trainer Marco Rose is sure to provide updates at his coming pre-match presser.
