The centre back picked up the knock in training, and missed the London side’s 2-0 win over Wolves at Molineux on Saturday.
The news is a real blow to manager Harry Redknapp, who is already missing a number of key defensive players, and has a congested fixture list to contend with, as his team face PAOK in Greece on Thursday and Liverpool at home on Sunday.
“The whole situation is a nightmare, I have no idea what team I will be able to play,” he told The Daily Mail.
“I will sit down and see who I can take out to Greece. It may well be a chance for some of the fringe players to take their chance. I really don’t know who will be ready for Liverpool,” he admitted.
William Gallas is believed to be on the recovery trail however, as a calf injury has sidelined him for the start of the campaign.
The 34-year-old, who featured heavily in Spurs’ Champions League run last year, has started light training.
Although he is doubtful for the Liverpool clash on Sunday, Harry Redknapp hopes to have him available for their game against Wigan on September 24th.
