The Italian international clashed with Gerry Taggart during Roma's pre-season game with Stoke on Thursday.
He was stretchered off during the game in Austria and he flew back to Italy on Friday for treatment.
Specialists have now confirmed that Tommasi has damaged the ligaments in his knee.
Tommasi will have surgery in the next few days which will rule him out of action for until January next year.
