On Saturday, the Köpenick-based club supplied updates on both players. Rønnow will be out until further notice. The 30-year-old has suffered what the club termed a "structural muscular injury", casting doubt on his ability to return for the squad's final two Bundesliga games. Backup Lennart Grill should start between the posts for die Eisernen against Leverkusen tomorrow.
As for Schäfer, Union revealed that the 23-year-old Hungarian international underwent a surgical procedure on his foot. The extent of the surgery is not known, but it would appear doubtful that the attacker will return at all this calendar year. Both players featured in 11 of Union's 12 league fixtures thus far this season.
