Jagielka, who suffered a similar injury in April 2009, has revealed he will be helping the 25-year-old along the way in his responsibility as Club captain.
He told evertontv: "It's never nice first of all to hear your teammate has got injured and then see the footage. I pretty much had the same injury myself and speaking to Gibbo I know the feelings he is going through; the shock of realising something isn't right, which normally indicates it's the big injury that he has done.
"At the moment there is nothing much he can do - he has to let the swelling go out of the way, have the operation and then crack on from there.
"He's going to be a massive miss because he was a fantastic player for us last season when he was fit. We are going to miss him but all the boys are going to support him as much as they can.
"Hopefully we can keep his spirits up and it will be nice to see him back in an Everton shirt as soon as possible."
