Ribery sustained a thigh injury during training Thursday and he will not play Friday against VfL Wolfsburg.

Ribery, who has only two goals and three assists this season, is expected to be sidelined for at least two weeks before returning to training. While Bayern has plenty of depth to withstand the blow, it's certainly a tough hit for fantasy owners, as Ribery is also expected to miss matches against Schalke and Stuttgart.

Ribery scored in the 51st minute to help Bayern Munich to a 1-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday.

Ribery dealt with a knee injury earlier this season, but he's starting to come into very solid form. Unfortunately, he's not a great fantasy option in most leagues, as he doesn't score a ton of goals, nor does he pick up a lot of assists, so while he is arguably one of the best players in the world, he's got plenty of contemporaries in the fantasy game.
