The Arsenal star was stretchered off after 14 minutes in the 0-0 draw with Republic of Ireland at Lansdowne Road following a challenge by Graham Kavanagh early in the match.
He was able to continue after treatment but went down again in the 14th minute and was carried off on a stretcher and replaced by Edmilson.
Parriera said after game: "I think he will miss our next game."
Considering Brazil's next game is a World Cup qualifier in Paraguay on March 30, it does not bode well for Gunners boss Arsene Wenger who could lose a key figure in his assault domestically and in Europe.
