Reid hurt his foot in the pre-season victory against Preston last weekend.
Scans have shown that Reid has broken a bone in his foot which will sideline him for a lengthy period.
Reid will now miss the start of the new season and will also be absent for the beginning of Republic of Ireland's World Cup qualifying campaign.
The news is a major blow for Reid who saw his time at Ewood Park plagued by injuries.
