The duo limped out of last weekend's 3-2 defeat to Charlton with the problems and Blackburn fear the pair could face a number of weeks on the sidelines.
The news is a blow for Stead, who has enjoyed a tremendous start to his Rovers career since his move from Huddersfield Town in January.
Both players are to undergo scans on the injuries and Rovers boss Graeme Souness is unsure how long they will be out of action.
"Garry Flitcroft and Jonathan Stead are both feeling their hamstrings," Souness told the club's official website.
"They'll be assessed by our medical team, but it is too early to say how serious the injuries are."
