Dortmund's Reus fit for Leverkusen clash

Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus will be fit to play against Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday after a foot injury picked up in Germany's 2-1 victory over Austria in a 2014 World Cup qualifier turned out to be bruising.

Reus fired Germany into a 44th minute lead on Tuesday but was injured in the process.

"Reus suffered only a bruise in his foot. That is the result of a medical check today," Dortmund said on Wednesday. "His participation in the league game against Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday is not in danger."

The German footballer of the year joined two-times defending Bundesliga champions Dortmund from Borussia Monchengladbach in the close season in a deal reportedly worth 17 million euros.

Dortmund are in sixth place in the standings on four points from two games, two behind leaders Bayern Munich, with Reus having scored once.
