BREMEN, Germany --- Werder Bremen striker Claudio Pizarro tore a muscle in his right hamstring and could be sidelined up to three weeks.

Pizarro, 32, was injured in training Wednesday and will be sidelined for the third time this season. "I went for a sprint and felt a twitch," Pizarro said.

Werder, which has lost three straight Bundesliga matches, plays Eintracht on Saturday.
