Stankovic picked up the injury during Serbia & Montenegro's World Cup qualifying win over Lithuania on Saturday.
The winger has been ruled out of Wednesday's game with Balkan rivals Bosnia-Herzegovina but could be out for some time.
Early scans on the injury have shown up a possible muscle tear, which would be a major worry for Inter coach Roberto Mancini.
The former Lazio man will undergo further tests on Thursday when the full extent of the damage will be known.
But Inter are already bracing themselves for the worst, with a ruptured thigh muscle likely to keep Stankovic on the sidelines for at least two months.
