The Republic of Ireland international has been struggling with a hamstring problem, but had hoped to hand manager Graeme Souness a boost by returning to the fray before the end of the month.
However, Souness has revealed that the close season capture from Millwall could be sidelined for another four weeks.
"Steven was doing well with his rehabilitation but then he broke down in training on Thursday and it looks like he could be out for anything up to a month," commented the Rovers boss.
The former Liverpool manager will be hoping for a change in fortunes after a week that has seen Brian McBride opt to join Fulham rather than seal a protracted transfer to Ewood Park.
