The former Arsenal ace was forced to undergo surgery, as his troublesome knee prevented him from kicking properly.
Wright, who was substituted after just 26 minutes against Newcastle, could now be back for The Toffees' clashes against Southampton or Aston Villa next month.
"Richard's operation went well," head physio Mick Rathbone told the club's official website.
"Just as we had hoped, there's no serious damage to the knee and he is expected to be back with us within three to four weeks."
With Wright sidelined, manager David Moyes will likely hand Nigel Martyn his full debut at Middlesbrough and go with Iain Turner on the bench, as Steve Simonsen is also injured.
