The Mexican midfielder picked up the injury in training, the Spanish champions said in a statement on their website on Thursday.
The 23-year-old, the younger brother of Villarreal forward Giovani Dos Santos, will have arthroscopic surgery early next month.
A product of the club's reknowned academy, Dos Santos is in his second year as a member of the Barca first-team squad and has made three league appearances this season.
