The Northern Irishman have gotten the results of Ndidi's scan, and he has confirmed that the holding midfielder will be sidelined for four to five weeks.
If it's more than a month, the Nigerian international won't be available for Rodgers' two crucial Premier League matches against Manchester United (October 16) and Arsenal (October 30).
Ndidi will also be unavailable for selection in two Europa League games against Spartak Moscow, Brentford and Brighton.
Logically Leicester City will not release him to the Nigeria Football Federation for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Liberia and Cape Verde, as he will not have fully recovered and will be missing match fitness.
Rodgers said in quotes relayed by LeicestershireLive, according to BBC Leicester: "It was unfortunate that he did it during the (Burnley) game. We'll see how long it takes. It could be four to five weeks."
Ndidi has been unable to play for the Super Eagles in four of their last five matches due to injury.
