BRIAN SCIARETTA - Wednesday, October 9, 2013
After leaving Hertha Berlin's 1-1 draw with Freiburg in the first half on September 22 with an elbow injury, John Anthony Brooks has returned to training with the Bundesliga club.

The diagnosis of his injury was a hyper-extension of his right elbow and the initial prognosis was for a 2-3 week recovery.

"He has resumed lightweight training," a source close to the player told YA.

According the Hertha Berlin website, he has resumed jogging and running but is not fully sprinting or engaged in contact. When reporters today asked Brooks following today's practice about the U.S national team he regretted that he was unfit for the present World Cup qualifiers against Jamaica and Panama but added "I hope that next time I'm there!"

After earning promotion to the Bundesliga last season, Hertha Berlin are off to a strong start in the top flight where it sits in sixth place after eight games. Brooks has been a regular starter when health, playing in six games and scoring once.
