KENYA BROWN - Wednesday, April 26, 2017
The injury bug has caught John Brooks again as German Bundesliga team Hertha Berlin announced on Tuesday that the defender will miss some time due to a hip injury.

The 24-year-old informed the coaching staff that he felt some discomfort following the team's 1-0 win over Wolfsburg over the weekend. After an examination, the team said it was a muscle strain around the hip area, but other media reports have it is a tear of the muscle. The team went on to say that Brooks will be out of action for some time.

The news of Brooks' injury comes at a crucial time for the capital team as there are four games left in the season and they are looking hold on to fifth place, which will guarantee them a place in next season's Europa League.

Depending on how long the German-born defender remains on the shelf could also be bad news for the US national team as they continue their World Cup qualifying campaign in June.
