Piszczek will be out for six weeks after suffering a syndesmotic ankle sprain against Juventus, BVB.de reports.

Following a challenge by Juventus' Paul Pogba on Tuesday night, Piszczek had to be taken off the field on 32 minutes. Further analysis of the injury has found that Piszczek damaged the syndesmosis ligament that connects the tibula and fibula. Team-mate Henrikh Mkhitaryan suffered a similar injury in September and had to endure a six week stint on the sidelines.

Piszczek was taken off Tuesday in Dortmund's game with Juventus because of an ankle sprain, BVB.de reports.

The fullback was replaced by Matthias Ginter on 32 minutes after clashing with Juventus' Paul Pogba. Coach Jurgen Klopp blamed an ankle sprain and early reports suggest that the Polish international might be out for some weeks.

Piszczek conceded two goals Friday in Dortmund's 3-2 win over Stuttgart.

Piszczek produced a high-octane performance full of effort and had little to do with the two goals scored by the opposition. The defender covered more distance than any of his team-mates and produced some effective offensive play but did get booked late-on.

Piszczek conceded two goals as Dortmund fought back to beat Mainz 4-2 Friday.

Piszczek failed to extend his own two-game clean sheet streak but finished on the winning side regardless. The full-back wasn't on the top of his game offensively (taking one shot and one cross) but did look very reliable in defense. It's been a while since Piszczek contributed significantly going forward but that should come with his side's attacking plays looking increasingly effective.

Piszczek returned to the team following a thigh injury and kept a clean sheet as Dortmund beat Freiburg 3-0 Saturday.

Piszczek has now kept two consecutive clean sheets after having missed the 1-0 defeat Wednesday to Augsburg. The full-back looked both solid defensively and a threat going forward. Piszczek was perhaps a bit over-exuberant at times and got booked as a result on 34 minutes, however it was a fine performance overall.

Piszcek kept a clean sheet but was taken off after 46 minutes with a thigh injury in Dortmund's 0-0 draw Saturday with Bayer Leverkusen.

Piszczek had to make way for Neven Subotic after half-time with the Polish international no longer able to play on. No official reports are out yet about the extent of his injury but Dortmund really can't afford to lose their star full-back at such a crucial time.

Piszczek defended and attacked well at times but was far from his best Saturday as Dortmund lost 2-1 to Werder Bremen.

Piszczek returned to the team having missed the home tie with Wolfsburg but didn't play to the best of his abilities. Despite completing seven crosses and going close to scoring with a deflected pass, the Polish international was part of a frail Dortmund defensive line and made too many misplaced passes thus losing valuable possession for his team.

Piszczek worked hard but looked poor in defense as Dortmund fell to a 1-0 defeat Saturday to Hertha Berlin.

Piszczek was typically attack-minded and aided Dortmund going forward but looked shaky in defense during Saturday's encounter. He was reckless at times and made an awful tackle on Hertha's Per Skjelbred in the second half which got him booked. Dortmund are suffering badly in the league with even usually consistent performers like Piszczek visibly struggling.
