Petersen has been ruled out for the next six weeks after partially tearing ligaments in his left knee during last Saturday's Bundesliga match against SC Freiburg, the Associated Press reports.

Petersen, who signed from Bayern Munich last summer, had scored three times in eight Bundesliga matches this season. After a slow start, Petersen had picked it up as of late, scoring his three goals in his last four matches. He'll now be out until at least early December.
