The in-form Dutch custodian suffered the injury shortly before half-time during the local derby at Bochum's Ruhr Stadion and had to be replaced during the break by Christian Vander.
"At least one ligament has been torn, but we will only see the full extent of the damage after a detailed examination," confirmed the disappointed keeper.
He added: "But I'll definitely not be fit to play again before the winter break."
Bochum have had a bright start to the season, but Sunday`s defeat to Schalke has seen them drop to seventh and the loss of van Duijnhoven capped a miserable weekend for the club.
