Posch and Kadeřábek injured
Stefan Posch and Pavel Kadeřábek will have to take some time to recover after picking up knocks on Sunday. Both players were forced to come off injured during the DFB Cup first round tie away to Regionalliga outfit Chemnitzer FC (which Hoffenheim won 5-4 on penalty kicks). Defender Posch went down with a severe contusion on his shin, while Kadeřábek suffered an equally severe contusion on his thigh. They join Benjamin Hübner (ankle problem), Robert Skov (ankle problem), Munas Dabbur (muscular problem) and Håvard Nordtveit (recovering from a broken foot) on the list of TSG players carrying injuries.
