The 27-year-old, who will also miss his country's forthcoming Euro 2012 qualifiers against Lithuania and Liechtenstein, is hoping to return to training soon, but knows he cannot afford to hurry his recovery.
"I'd like to return to full training as quickly as possible but I will not take any chances because this is the second time I've suffered this injury," Gordon told the Daily Record.
"I'm already doing little bits of handling and work in the gym. I've come back from this before and I'll come back from it again.
"It's tough to watch from the sidelines with Sunderland and I'm so disappointed to miss these games for Scotland."
