The 25-year-old sustained the injury during the first half of the game at Mallorca`s Son Moix stadium, and was replaced at the interval by Ivan Helguera.
The former Oviedo stopper will now miss league games against Valladolid and Alaves, and the Champions League clash against Basel next week.
Javier Irureta will field either Donato or Jorge Andrade in place of the injured defender for the upcoming games.
Cesar's absence will be a major blow for Deportivo, who are currently also without Pablo Amo and Fran, but The Galicians will be boosted by the imminent return of star midfielder Juan Carlos Valeron.
