Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed Thursday that Sturridge will be out for up to three weeks with a thigh injury, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Sturridge will miss Premier League matches against Aston Villa and West Ham, as well as a Champions League match against Ludogorets. While he's got a shot at returning to face Everton on Sept. 27, that would be on the shorter end of any potential return, which could mean he could be back Oct. 4 against West Brom.

Sturridge has been ruled out for Sunday's match against Aston Villa, and he could miss two additional Premier League matches against West Ham and Everton. In addition, he will not play against Ludogorets in the Champions League, a big blow to Liverpool ahead of some very important matches. Mario Balotelli will likely continue to start up front, with Rickie Lambert potentially getting some more playing time in the short-term.
