Schweinsteiger started in a more advanced position versus Barcelona on Tuesday and responded with two shots on goal and a pair of assists.

Typically a holding midfielder, Schweinsteiger is playing farther up the pitch of late with several attacking players injured and is more involved in the attack. He has eight assists to his name in just 24 appearances in all competitions this season and should be a nice value play versus Freiburg this weekend.

Schweinsteiger played 90 minutes for the first time since March 22 on Sunday, firing off five shots and scoring the winning goal in Bayern's 1-0 victory over Hertha Berlin.

The German has only made 15 starts in all competitions this season, but has been fairly productive during limited action and now has three goals and six assists to his name. With Bayern missing quite a few of its regular midfielders, Schweinsteiger should be leaned upon to produce in the short term. Next up for the Munich outfit is a DFB Pokal semi-final against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.

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, 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, 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.
