BRIAN SCIARETTA - Tuesday, January 7, 2014
U.S international John Brooks suffered a knee injury on Monday and will miss Hertha Berlin's winter break camp.

A source close to the player told YA on Tuesday that the injury is expected to keep Brooks out 14 days

Brooks, 20, is currently in the middle of his first Bundesliga season. Earlier this season he missed a month due to an elbow injury. In December he was removed from a game in the first half after his coach citied inconsistent play.

So far this season he has played in eight games and has scored one goal for Hertha Berlin.

Brooks has played twice for the U.S national team in 2013 when he played full 90 performances in a 4-3 win over Bosnia and a 1-0 loss to Austria.
