The former Crystal Palace defender will miss the first month of the season after breaking his right foot.
Shaw has been carrying the injury for some time but an initial scan showed only bad bruising, however when the problem worsened he had a second scan which revealed the break.
"I have got a small fracture right on the bone where I kick the ball so that has not helped and that's why it has been so painful," Shaw told the Coventry Evening Telegraph.
"I did it in the first week of the pre-season when we had a game among ourselves and I collided with one of the lads. At first I thought it was just bruising on the top of my foot.
"I thought it would settle down nicely but when I did a bit of running and kicked a ball again it flared up again and I realised it was more of a problem than was first diagnosed."
