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.

Schweinsteiger, who is recovering from a knee injury, was declared fit ahead of Monday's World Cup match against Portugal, The Guardian reports.

Coach Joachim Low has indicated that he will use Philipp Lahm in the midfield for the opening match, which could push Schweinsteiger to the bench, if Sami Khedria remains in the starting XI. Either way, Schweinsteiger has plenty of ability to produce off the bench.

Schweinsteiger (knee) was able to participate in light training with the German national team Thursday, Bundesliga.com reports.

Schweinsteiger was held out of the DFB Cup final against Borussia Dortmund last weekend because of a patella tendon injury, although he is expected to be fit enough for the start of the World Cup.

Schweinsteiger suffered a knee injury during Bayern Munich's final Bundesliga match of the season last weekend, and he is set for a scan this week, ESPN FC reports. "Bastian told me he has problems with his left knee," manager Pep Guardiola said. "The doctor told me that it is the patella tendon."

The injury could not come at a worse time for Schweinsteiger, who needs to be in top form for Germany at this summer's World Cup. Schweinsteiger had two ankle surgeries last year, so it has been awhile since he has been fully fit for a prolonged period.
