Chelsea said the midfielder underwent treatment for the injury in London, but they failed to release him for independent assessment by Nigeria's medical team.
The 20-year-old was dropped for last weekend's win over Niger and he has not responded to calls to play for Nigeria's Under 23 side.
The NFA has now decided to suspend Obi Mikel from all international action for an indefinite period.
