Duff, 23-years-old, sustained the injury in what Robins manager John Ward has described as an 'innocuous incident'.
Although the club are still waiting to learn the full extent of the injury, it is expected that Duff will be ruled out until September.
''It's a huge disappointment for the player and for the team,'' Ward told the Western Daily Press.
''It came about in training when he was running at half pace and felt the crack at the top of his foot.
''It seemed an innocuous incident as there was no contact with anybody else and it was a very strange thing to happen.
''We don't know how long he'll be out, but it could be eight weeks.''
