The 19-year-old fullback rolled his ankle in ugly fashion just 55 seconds after kickoff in the Bundesliga match at Munich's Allianz Arena. There was no one near him as he turned to go backwards, his ankle giving way on the edge of the centre circle as Frankfurt mounted an attack.

Davies immediately went down, clutching his ankle and signalling to the bench that he needed help. He was clearly in pain as trainers worked on him and needed assistance getting off the field.

  Garoppolo's ankle feeling better headed into game vs. Rams SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Jimmy Garoppolo’s sprained right ankle felt much better this week in practice, making the San Francisco 49ers confident their quarterback can bounce back from a rough performance last week that got him pulled at halftime. Garoppolo initially injured the ankle in a Week 2 win against the New York Jets and returned last Sunday against Miami after being limited most of the week at practice. He never looked comfortable and threw two interceptions before getting pulled at halftime during a 43-17 loss to the Dolphins.

"He sustained a ligament injury," Bayern coach Hansi Flick told the post-match news conference. "One ligament is fully torn, another is partially torn. We reckon he'll be sidelined for six to eight weeks."

"It hurts when a player of this quality is ruled out," he added.

French international Lucas Hernandez, who cost Bayern 80 million euros ($124.6 million) in March 2019, came on for him in the third minute.

"Thank you everyone for the kind messages. I will be back stronger, just a bump in the road," Davies tweeted later.

It had already been a rough start to the new season for Davies, who had seen limited playing time with Flick saying his form had dipped from last season when he was named Bundesliga rookie of the year.

Davies. who has won 17 caps for Canada with five goals, has become the face of Canadian soccer abroad.
