The 20-year-old suffered the injury during the Nerazzurri's 1-0 victory over Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League on Thursday and was substituted in the second half of the encounter.
Coutinho underwent further scans on Friday morning which revealed a little fracture on his shinbone that will keep him on the sidelines for the next three to four weeks.
Coutinho has scored three goals in 12 competitive matches for Inter this season.
