Coach Didier Deschamps has already lost the services of influential playmaker Ludovic Giuly with a broken foot and will be downhearted at seeing Squillaci hobble out of the defeat to Lille at the weekend.
The centre back is definitely out of the first game in Russia, and could be sidelined for around a month.
Team doctor Eric Buracchi has confirmed the defender suffered a muscular problem behind his right leg and his absence will not aid Monaco's bid to retain leadership of Ligue 1.
