A statement on Juve's website read: "Initial examinations suggest it is a grade one-two strain and the estimated recovery time is around four weeks.

"A more precise recovery time will be established in due course following daily monitoring of the player and further diagnostic tests."

The injury ruled Howedes out of Saturday's 4-0 derby win over Torino.
