The ex-Wimbledon man had further examinations on his foot to determine the extent of the damage and scans have revealed some severe bone bruising that will keep him sidelined for at least a further three weeks.
Ainsworth is now off crutches but the injury will take longer to heal than first expected.
In other news, Tony Thorpe is making slow progress in his recovery from a calf injury.
The striker is a doubt for Saturday's game against Brighton, but Marc Bircham and Chris Day are expected to shake off knocks and be available.
