Scott Murray will miss Saturday's promotion battle with Nottingham Forest after scans revealed a fourth metatarsal break in his injured foot.
The Bristol City midfielder has already missed eight matches and now faces a further two weeks out after discovering the stress fracture.
The 32-year-old, who sustained the original injury in February, said the news of a further break came as a major blow.
"I am gutted because I had set my heart on playing some part in the big game against Forest," he told the club's official website.
Meanwhile, David Prutton hopes to return for Forest on Saturday after missing five games with a thigh injury.
The 25-year-old midfielder, on loan from Southampton until the end of the season, took part in a full training session on Monday.
"I came through it without any problems and hopefully I'll be in the squad for Saturday's game," he told the club's official website.
"It has been a frustrating month for me because the injury seemed so innocuous when it happened at the end of a training session, but the fact that the team has been doing so well has made my time on the sidelines a little easier to bear."
Forest boss Colin Calderwood could also welcome Wes Morgan back into the side after the defender missed two games with an ankle problem.
