The 33-year-old was taken off during his side's 3-1 FA Cup win at Bristol Rovers with the problem.

Goals from Marc Albrighton, Gabby Agbonlahor and Ciaran Clark secured Villa's passage through to the fourth round.

Alex McLeish's side resume domestic duties with a home match against Everton next Saturday.
