The France international, who scored on his Hoops debut following his £8m arrival from Marseille, is absent with a hamstring strain.
Jay Bothroyd and DJ Campbell, who have both recently returned from loan spells away from Loftus Road, are handed starts up front as Redknapp makes nine changes from the side that drew with West Ham United last weekend.
MK Dons, who have had a fortnight's rest due to their fixture against Crewe Alexandra being postponed last weekend, make just one alteration from the side named last time out.
Experienced poacher Ryan Lowe, who has seven goals to his name this campaign, has the responsibility of leading the Dons' line.
QPR: Green; Fabio, Ferdinand, Ben Haim, Traore; Mackie, Faurlin, Granero, Park; Campbell, Bothroyd
MK Dons: Martin; Ostemobor, Chicksen, Lewington, MacKenzie, Kay; Williams, Potter, Bowditch, Smith; Lowe
