Marco Reus suffered suspected torn ankle ligaments during Borussia Dortmund's 2-2 draw at Paderborn in the Bundesliga on Saturday, ruling him out of the clash against Arsenal in midweek.

The Germany forward was forced off in the 64th minute of the match, leaving the pitch on a stretcher and being taken to hospital.

Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc said on the club's official website Reus could have suffered "a lateral ankle ligament rupture" according to the team doctor's initial diagnosis.

The injury was to the right ankle and boss Jurgen Klopp said: "His ankle has swollen up badly."

Should the early diagnosis prove accurate, it would be another major injury setback for Dortmund's key man. Reus was ruled out of the World Cup by a partial ligament tear in his left ankle.
