The Australian ace sustained an ankle knock in Wednesday's Carling Cup defeat to Bolton.
Reds boss Gerard Houllier admitted Kewell was a major doubt for the trip to St James' Park.
"I don't know if Harry will be able to play. He is doubtful," said Houllier.
Polish goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek is also struggling to be fit for the game with Newcastle with a knee injury, but he was unlikely to play anyway with Chris Kirkland coming back into the starting line-up after being rested for the Bolton match.
