The recommended timeline for rehabilitation means that Pocock will not take any further part in The Invesec Rugby Championship is also considered doubtful.
The Qantas Wallabies side for Saturday’s return Bledisloe Cup Test against the All Blacks in Auckland will be named on Thursday morning before the side flies to New Zealand that afternoon.
Halfback Will Genia has been confirmed to take over in the captaincy role from Pocock.
