Lars Bender will not be fit in time for Bayer Leverkusen's Bundesliga encounter with Borussia Mönchengladbach on Saturday, according to Kicker.
The 31-year-old is still struggling with the foot injury that kept him out of Monday's 4-1 win over Werder Bremen.
While Bender is certain to miss Saturday's game, there is still a slight chance he could feature against Wolfsburg on Tuesday.
Mitchell Weiser, who stepped in for Bender at right-back and scored against Werder, is likely to be handed another start at Borussia-Park this weekend.
