The 33-year-old moves to St Andrews after summer signing Nico Vaesen stunned coaching staff on Thursday by reporting that he had contracted an infection in his arm.
City managing director Karren Brady explained to the club's official website: "He had been experiencing some discomfort with his arm, but when he woke up his arm was the size of a football.
"He has gone into hospital for his arm to be drained and to receive intravenous antibiotics and is expected to remain there for two or three days.
"It is unlikely that he will be available to play for at least seven to ten days at the earliest."
Backup keeper Ian Bennett is also currently sidelined after fracturing his thumb during pre-season training, leaving Kevin Poole as the club's only fit custodian.
