DORTMUND, Germany (AP) — Borussia Dortmund central defender Mats Hummels and two other players will be out for several weeks because of various injuries incurred in the 1-1 draw at Hannover.

Hummels has a heavily bruised right foot and won't be able to practice for at least two weeks. He also won't be available for Germany's World Cup qualifiers against Ireland and Sweden.

The clubs says midfielder and Poland international Jakub Blaszczykowski will be out for six weeks with a left-ankle injury. Midfielder Sven Bender will be out for about two weeks after taking a strong hit and bruising the left side of his face and injuring his eye.
