Schweinsteiger has been ruled out for Wednesday's Champions League match against FC Porto because of an illness, ESPN FC reports.

Schweinsteiger will be joined on the sideline by Franck Ribery, who has still not fully recovered from his ankle injury. However, long-time absentees Philipp Lahm and Thiago Alcantara are fit again, which should help lessen the blow of Schweinsteiger's absence.

Schweinsteiger picked up an assist within his five key passes during Bayern Munich's 8-0 demolition of Hamburg on Saturday.

Schweinsteiger doesn't get involved in the attack much, which limits his fantasy upside in most formats, but he continues to be vital for Bayern's defense.

Schweinsteiger picked up an assist in Saturday's 4-0 win over Hoffenheim, his first appearance this season after recovering from a knee injury.

Schweinsteiger played only 13 minutes, but it was enough to get him an assist on Sebastian Rode's 86th minute goal. With a game under his belt, he could return to the starting XI for Tuesday's Champions League match against Manchester City.

Schweinsteiger (knee) is back in training with a ball, Bundesliga.com reports.

Having been out since August, Schweinsteiger has now been seen in an individual training session going through numerous exercises. It is uncertain when he will return fully but there may now be a chance that the World Cup winner could be back in match action before the end of the year.

Schweinsteiger may not be able to return from his knee injury until after the new year, Bild reports.

Schweinsteiger suffered the injury back in August and was only expected to miss a few weeks, but he is still not close to training with the first team. Bayern Munich have been rolling without him, so there is certainly not short-term urgency to rush him back before he's fully fit.

Schweinsteiger is expected to miss several weeks due to a knee injury, Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said Tuesday, Bundesliga.com reports.

While Schweinsteiger is an excellent player, Bayern are plenty deep to fill the void while he is sidelined. Germany's national team also plays a few international fixtures, which he will miss, but like Bayern, they have a number of players that are capable of filling in.

Schweinsteiger bruised his ankle in Bayern Munich's loss to the MLS All-Stars on Wednesday.

Pep Guardiola was furious with some of the challenges dished out by the All-Stars, who ended up winning the match 2-1. Fortunately for Bayern, Schweinsteiger, who left the pitch only minutes after getting subbed on, doesn't appear to have picked up a serious injury. He should be fine for the start of the season.

Schweinsteiger, who was declared fit Sunday following his recovery from a knee injury, was an unused substitute during Germany's 4-0 win over Portugal in their World Cup opener Monday.

Germany held a 2-0 lead after 32 minutes and had a man-advantage after 37 when Portugal defender Pepe was sent off, leaving little reason for Schweinsteiger to test his knee. Up next is a match against Ghana on Saturday, which could be an appropriate game to bring Schweinsteiger back.
