Buxton suffered medial ligament damage during the Championship victory over Leeds at Pride Park on December 8.
Ahead of his side's home FA Cup third-round tie against League One leaders Tranmere on Saturday, Rams boss Nigel Clough told the media: "Jake is coming on and there has been a marked improvement.
"We still think he is two or three weeks away. We are hoping to have him back in February."
