Bremen defender Boenisch out for up to 6 months

Werder Bremen and Poland defender Sebastian Boenisch will be out

of action for up to six months with a knee injury.

The Bundesliga club said Tuesday that a scan showed an injury to

the joint in the 23-year-old’s right knee.

Team doctor Goetz Dimanski says it will take between four to six

months to get Boenisch back to fitness.
