Reus suffered a partially torn lateral ligament in his left ankle during Germany's Euro 2016 qualifying against Scotland on Monday and he will be sidelined for at least four weeks, reports.

Reus injured the same ankle back in June, which ultimately led him to miss the World Cup, so the latest issue is especially troublesome. He has been a popular name in the last couple transfer windows and he has made it clear he does not see his future in Dortmund, but the injury issue will surely take a price on his expected future salary. In addition, he will now miss Dortmund's first Champions League group stage match against Arsenal.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Reus scored Borussia Dortmund's first goal in the team's 3-2 away win over FC Augsburg on Friday.

Not only did Reus find the back of the net, but he also played the entire 90 minutes of the victory, signalling that he's back at full fitness following the ankle issue that plagued him over the summer. Reus will be a fantasy force when healthy this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Reus, who has been out for the last few months with an ankle injury, captained Borussia Dortmund during its DFB Cup first round match against Stuttgarter Kickers, reports.

Reus is one of the best midfielders in Germany when fit, and he's been linked to numerous clubs this summer after making it clear he has no desire to stay with Dortmund long-term. He is in the last year of his contract, so Dortmund are running out of time if they want to get something for him instead of losing him for free like they did Robert Lewandowski. With his performance Saturday, he looks poised to start the Bundesliga opener against Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday.

Reus (ankle) has rejected a contract extension offer from Borussia Dortmund, as he continues to eye a move away from the club, Bild reports.

Reus was headed to be one of the biggest signings of the summer until he suffered a devastating ankle injury in June that kept him from participating in the World Cup. He has been linked to Manchester United for quite awhile, but two other big clubs are lurking: Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

Reus, who suffered ligament damage in his ankle back in June while playing for Germany, returned to light training with Borussia Dortmund on Thursday, reports.

The injury cost Reus a spot with Germany at the World Cup, while also possibly keeping him from a high-profile transfer this summer. He is expected to be out until September, although it wouldn't be surprising if he was limited for the first month.

Reus was ruled out of the World Cup after suffering a partial tear of a left ankle ligament in Germany's friendly against Armenia last week, The Guardian reports.

Defender Shkodran Mustafi has been named to the 23-man squad in Reus' place. Reus does not have a specific timeline for return, although there hasn't been any talk of him missing the beginning of the 2014-15 Bundesliga season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Reus suffered an ankle injury Friday against Armenia and an MRI revealed a potential ligament tear, which would rule him out of the World Cup, BILD Sport reports.

While the Germans are relatively deep in the midfield, losing Reus would be a huge blow to their title chances. He will likely undergo further testing, but it's entirely possible that he will not play in Brazil.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Reus finished the 2013-14 Bundesliga season with 16 goals and 13 assists, the latter of which led the league.

Reus has been heavily linked to Manchester United for quite some time, although he recently speculated that he will most likely stay with Dortmund. He does have a 35 million release clause in his contract, although it is unclear if Man U would be willing to go that deep in the coffers with so many other needs to fill.
