Chandler out with foot injury
FC Nürnberg announced on their website Thursday that Timmy Chandler has incurred a foot injury. The 21 year-old suffered a laceration to the instep of his right foot during training and will miss the team's daunting trip on Saturday to league leaders Borussia Dortmund.

The right back will likely be replaced by Juri Judt, the Kazakhstan-born German whom Chandler supplanted in the starting lineup earlier this spring. It is unclear whether the injury could cause him to miss any more time in the coming weeks.
