Khedira suffered a thigh injury while training with the German national team Tuesday and he could miss up to six weeks.

Khedira, who suffered a torn ACL in early November, may be able to return to training later this month, reports. "It's possible that in two to three weeks I'll be able to train with the squad again. I'm a deeply optimistic person, but I'm not going to put any pressure on myself," Khedira said.

Khedira is desperately trying to get back on the pitch in order to be fit enough for this summer's World Cup, but it is important that he doesn't push too hard and potentially re-injure his knee. Nevertheless, it's certainly encouraging that he could get back to training within three weeks.
