The German, who won silver at the 2009 World Championships, sustained the injury in a fall during training camp in Oberstdorf.

"Tino was injured two weeks ago and for the first time since has jumped from the hill but he is still in pain," said head coach Hermann Weinbuch.

Edelmann, who has finished in the top 10 in the World Cup in each of the past four seasons, is expected to return in Kuusamo on December 1.
