The 28-year-old had been on track for a breakout season, tallying twice (on penalties) and racking up four assists until a torn thigh muscle bundle sidelined him indefinitely after week seven.

Rose indicated that a full 90-minute-deployment for Hofmann remained likely out-of-the-question, but left open the question as to whether he might still feature in the starting XI.
