John Brooks doubtful for match against Schalke due to injury


An injury looks set to keep John Brooks sidelined for another big game.

Brooks missed Hertha Berlin training on Tuesday with what has been described as muscular problems and is doubtful for this weekend’s Bundesliga clash with Schalke. Brooks has been a key part of Hertha’s side in their first two matches this season, both wins, and would be a tough miss for the team as they face a Schalke squad looking to bounce back after losing each of their opening matches.

“Muscle-related injuries are always difficult,” Hertha head coach Pal Dardai said, according to Kicker. “It’ll be a race against time for him.”

After a strong Copa America this summer, Brooks missed out on the most recent U.S. Men’s National Team World Cup qualifiers due to a back injury.

What do you think of Brooks injury? Any concerns?
