Due to the nature of the injury and the expected recovery period, it is unlikely Thorn will return to the field for the Highlanders in the 2014 Investec Super Rugby season.
Meanwhile the Highlanders, who will take a bye this weekend, have named their South African touring squad.
They will play the Sharks and Stormers in Round 11 and 12 respectively.
