After returning to Innsbruck for further evaluation, Kirchgasser suffered a strained right ACL and a bone bruise according to the Austrian Ski Federation.

Federation doctor Christian Fink says the three-time World Championship medalist will miss the next three to four weeks before a return to skiing is possible.
