Ndidi To Undergo Surgery Saturday
Ndidi sustained an abductor injury in Leicester City’s 4-2 home win against Burnely last weekend.
The Nigeria international missed the side’s Carabao Cup tie against Arsenal on Wednesday night.
The midfielder is now expected to remain on the sidelines for up to 12 weeks.
“That will take place tomorrow morning. It’s unfortunate. It’s come right off the bone. He’s going to be up to 12 weeks,” Rodgers told a press conference on Friday.
“He’s a huge player for us. It showed his mentality. Towards the end of last season, he felt it, and then during the game, but he carried on with his spirit. There’s no doubt he will be a miss.”
Ndidi has featured in a centre-back role this season following the unavailability of Wes Morgan and Jonny Evans due injury and suspension.
Rodgers however insists he won’t buying a replacement for the former Genk star.
“We have other priorities with the resources we have. We are looking at other positions. We have players who are capable of stepping in,” he added.
“Papy Mendy has done very well, Choudhury covered the ground very well against Arsenal.”
