However, Rodgers has insisted that the mistake was "over-analysed" and Gerrard has recovered ahead of Monday night's match away to Crystal Palace.
"Steven is a guy who has picked himself up over many years after disappointments, and he will do it again," Rodgers said in Friday's press conference. "He's a real, real good man.
"I think it's been a wee bit over-analysed as well - the guy slipped, which can happen to anyone. Unfortunately it led to the goal. It happens and we move on."
Liverpool have a two-point lead at the top of the Premier League table with as many matches left to play, but the advantage goes to third-placed Manchester City as they have a game in hand.
