Reus will be sidelined until January after suffering a right ankle injury in Saturday's Bundesliga match against Paderborn, the club's official website reports.

Given the extended Bundesliga break during the holiday period, Reus will likely be back Jan. 31 against Bayer Leverkusen, assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks in his recovery. Reus has been playing very well recently, scoring five times in his last seven matches, including Saturday's draw with Paderborn.

Reus could potentially be out long-term after being stretchered off with an ankle injury in Saturday's 2-2 draw with SC Paderborn, Bundesliga.com reports.

Reus went into a heavy challenge with Paderborn's Marvin Bakalorz and signs look bad regarding the extent of the injury. Jurgen Klopp said "it was a horrific moment, because Marco is now in hospital with a very swollen foot and we're all expecting a bad diagnosis. It's a red card. A draw in Paderborn isn't that dramatic, but the potential long-term loss of Reus is harder to accept." Reus has been on fine form recently, scoring five goals in his last seven games in all competitions, so any absence will be a major blow for Dortmund.

Reus scored but was then taken off injured once again as Dortmund drew 2-2 Saturday with Paderborn.

Reus' season has been littered with injuries including an ankle injury in the last league game that ruled him out of international action for Germany. It appears that that ankle had not fully healed as he was stretchered off with the same injury 67 minutes into Saturday's clash. Earlier in the match Reus had coolly finished off Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's superb pass to make it 2-0 Dortmund and also had a couple of decent efforts saved by Paderborn's Lukas Kruse. Reus was dynamic and influential as always which will make his injury a pill all the more difficult to swallow.

However Jurgen Klopp confirmed Thursday that "Marco Reus is fit to play against SC Paderborn," a tremendous boost for Dortmund who will be looking to continue their winning streak and move up the table.

Reus is recovering steadily from the ankle injury he suffered against Borussia Moenchengladbach and could play against Paderborn at the weekend, Bundesliga.com reports.

Although damaging ligaments in his ankle on Nov. 9 has kept Reus out of international action for Germany, it appears that Dortmund won't be missing their star man. He's already back in light training and may well return to the team when the Bundesliga recommences Saturday.

Reus will be out for two weeks after injuring his ankle Sunday against Borussia Moenchengladbach, BVB.de reports.

Reus' ankle injury rules him out for the next two weeks but luckily for Dortmund it coincides with the international break and he should thus not miss any league games. Reus will now not go on international duty with Germany, missing the European Championship qualifier with Gibraltar on Nov.14 and the friendly with Spain on Nov.18.

Reus had an excellent game and hit the woodwork twice as Dortmund beat Borussia Moenchengladbach 1-0 Sunday.

Reus has had a string of impressive performances lately and he continued his fine form against Borussia Moenchengladbach. He managed 8 shots on goal, shooting just wide within two minutes and then having his shot pushed onto the post soon after by visiting goalkeeper Yann Sommer. Following an own goal by Gladbach's Cristoph Kramer in the second half, Reus nearly made it two but hit the bar with a thunderous strike. He also made a game high of 20 tackles as he battled throughout in what was a man of the match display by the German international.
