Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi will be sidelined for two weeks with a thigh injury but could be back for the match at Serie A champion Juventus.
De Rossi injured his right thigh toward the end of Italy's draw against Bulgaria in World Cup qualifying on Friday. He returned to his club and has already begun treatment.
Roma says De Rossi will need around 15 days to recover, which rules him out of the Serie A games against Bologna, Cagliari and Sampdoria.
De Rossi had already been ruled out of Italy's qualifier against Malta on Tuesday.
It would be a big boost for Roma if De Rossi is fit for its trip to Turin to face Juventus on Sep. 29.
