The on-loan full back from Blackburn sustained a knee injury during Monday's defeat at Cardiff.
Tests have shown that McEveley has suffered torn knee ligaments and faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
Town boss Joe Royle admitted it was a major blow to lose McEveley.
"The ligament is torn completely - Jay is out for the season," Royle told the club's official website.
"It's a real blow and he will need surgery.
"We will talk to Blackburn and find out whether they want their specialist or our people to carry out the operation."
