The left-back started the game at the London Stadium but was forced off after half an hour in a make-shift sling.
It's another big blow for Tierney who has struggled for fitness since arriving from Celtic in the summer.
A hip injury meant he did not make his debut until late September, and he has made just 11 Arsenal appearances.
Tierney missed Arsenal's 2-2 draw at Standard Liege which secured their progression to the last 32 in the Europa League.
