Schalke's "Hunter" will not have the opportunity to log his 11th minute back in a Königsblauen kit until early March. The January acquisition's ill-defined calf and muscular problems have kept him out of action since a brief relief appearance in the round 19 draw with Bremen.
The club's official website announced that the 37-year-old will undergo "individualised rehabilitation" after suffering a muscle tear. His earliest potential availability will not come until the round 24 fixture against Mainz on March 5th.
