Defensive stalwart Mats Hummels didn't remain on the pitch long enough to participate in his side's 3-2 comeback win over Stuttgart on Saturday night. The 32-year-old was subbed off at the the half after looking visibly dazed after the initial 45. He couldn't even make it to the dressing room on his own power.

Despite the worrying scene, trainer Edin Terzic told members of the assembled press that the fitness issues weren't related to anything serious. The "Sky" broadcast reported potential stomach cramps, but Terzic spoke of something less specific.

"Mat suddenly had some circulation problems at signaled at the half that he couldn't continue," the 38-year-old noted, "I think there may still be some effects tonight, but will be better tomorrow."

Captain Marco Reus also got pulled in the 67th. Reus hobbled as he left the pitch, taking some time to check in with substitute and eventual game-winning goalscorer Ansgar Knauff.

"Marco had and an unlucky scene where he took a knock," Terzic explained, "but even there we are confident that it will be better tomorrow."
