The Irish defender had a scan on his injured knee and despite time being needed for the swelling to go down, it looks like Murphy will be out for around six to eight weeks.
The Dubliner, who turns 23 on Monday, will start a recovery programme in earnest once the injury subsides.
Murphy is joined on the Brunton Park sidelines by Mark Summerbell, who had an exploratory operation on his shoulder over the weekend.
Richie Foran is playing through the pain barrier despite being hampered with damaged ankle ligaments.
