But boss Mauricio Pochettino is hopeful Rose will be back in action much sooner.
"I am not a doctor but I can explain that he is very positive, we are very positive and he is happy," he said. "I was talking with him now - before the press conference - and we are happy after he saw the specialist.
"It is not a big issue - it is a minor problem, a small problem, and we will see. We hope that he can be available again as soon as possible."
