The England international sustained the injury after being introduced as a second-half substitute during Liverpool's 2-0 defeat at Newcastle United in the Premier League on Sunday.
Sturridge, who had been out of action since the beginning of October due to a knee injury, marked his return to the starting lineup by scoring twice in the 6-1 rout of Southampton in the quarter-finals of the League Cup last Wednesday.
The 26-year-old former Chelsea and Manchester City forward was also restricted to just 12 appearances for Liverpool last season. – Reuters
