NUREMBERG, Germany - 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."
