A medical examination revealed a more serious injury. According to Japanese media, Miura said, “We have removed Bauer from the first team, and it will take some time (for him to recover).” The Japanese outlet noted that torn muscles take a significant amount of time to heal, and it’s unclear if Bauer will return for the rest of the season.
