Germany (AP): Struggling Borussia Dortmund say they will be without captain Mats Hummels for three weeks after he injured his right foot during the club's Bundesliga defeat by Bayern Munich.

Hummels went off at half-time in Saturday's match. The club said yesterday that the Germany defender will miss tomorrow's Champions League match against Galatasaray and next weekend's Bundesliga game against Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Those games are followed by a two-week Bundesliga break for internationals, with Germany playing a European Champion-ship qualifier against Gibraltar and a friendly in Spain.

Hummels' injury adds to Dortmund's woes in what has been their worst start to a Bundesliga season. Saturday's defeat was their seventh in the opening 10 games and left it in the relegation play-off place.
