The Lyon captain suffered a thigh injury during the club's surprise French Cup elimination to Clermont-Ferrand on Tuesday.
It was initially thought that the attacker could require several weeks on the sidelines, after Govou admitted to being pessimistic about the injury.
But medical tests have shown that the forward's injury is nowhere near as serious as he believed and he may be back in less than a week.
Govou will be absent for this week's Ligue 1 clash with Caen but should return for next week's European tussle with Werder Bremen, with Lyon taking a 3-0 lead into the second leg.
