Pirlo is expected to miss up to a month of action after damaging ligaments in his knee during Sunday's win over Udinese, the Associated Press reports.

The club said that he had a "second-degree lesion to the collateral medial ligament in his right knee," and didn't technically give him a timeline for a return. However long it will be, it's doubtful we'll see Pirlo back before 2014.
