The defender suffered the problem during the Gunners' opening Premier League 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday evening at the Emirates.

The injury blow means that Gibbs will miss the first leg of Arsenal's Champions League playoff against Besiktas in Turkey tonight, as well as the return fixture at the Emirates.
