Weidenfeller was held out of Borussia Dortmund's 2-0 loss to Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday due to a lack of match fitness, Bundesliga.com reports.

Deputy keeper Mitch Langerak not only gave up two goals in the match, but the first one came just nine seconds in, breaking the previous record for the fastest goal in Bundesliga history by two seconds. With a performance like that, the club will be desperate to get Weidenfeller back in goal for next weekend's trip to face FC Augsburg.
