Dortmund loses goalkeeper Weidenfeller for 3 months

Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller will be sidelined for three months after undergoing a right shoulder operation Saturday.
Marc Ziegler will replace Weidenfeller after the Bundesliga's winter break ends, having stood in for the 27-year-old for three games during a suspension this season without allowing a goal.
Dortmund, in 10th place, faces MSV Duisburg on Feb. 2 in its first game back.
Weidenfeller has been bothered by his shoulder since September, but conservative treatment attempts failed, forcing the operation.
