Nuremeberg defender Nilsson out for 4 weeks

Nuremberg central defender Per Nilsson is expected to be out for

four weeks after hurting his left knee in a friendly shortly after

coming back from an Achilles tendon operation.

The Swedish defender pulled a ligament in his knee during a

friendly on Monday against second-division side Karlsruhe.

Nilsson began the brief comeback only two weeks ago.

Club doctor Matthias Brem says Nilsson will be out ”probably

for four weeks.”
