Iker Casillas can't seem to catch a break. 

Casillas was given a start for Real Madrid in their opening Champions League match against Galatasaray, but had to be taken out of the game after injuring his ribs during a collision with Sergio Ramos.

From AS English:

Iker is going to carry on, with his ribs heavily strapped, after he clashed with Ramos.

That didn't last long. Casillas off injured. Diego López comes on.
