PSG midfielder Fabian Ruiz posted a message on his personal Instagram account on Monday announcing his recovery from injury, which won't take as long as initially feared.

Despite the positive message on his account, the Spaniard will be absent from the pivotal game between Borussia Dortmund and PSG scheduled for next week with his shoulder injury.

Ruiz left the pitch on a stretcher last weekend in the game PSG played against Le Havre away from home ending in a 2-0 victory for the French champions.

The 26-year-old, who left the field in visible pain, will not recover in time for the decisive Champions League clash on Dec. 13, although all things considered the news is quite positive compared to the initial scare suffered by PSG when he went down last Saturday.

PSG have not officially disclosed the duration of his absence, although Le Parisien has spoken to sources telling them that the results of Monday's MRI will make it impossible for Ruiz to be fit for the upcoming match played by PSG in Ligue 1, as well as the European matchup at BVB next midweek.

Although the shoulder dislocation doesn't involve a fracture, there's uncertainty about his return in 2023, as PSG will have to consider the possibility of resting Ruiz for a full recovery during the remainder of December so he comes back stronger and at a 100% capacity for the start of the 2024 calendar year.
