"A medical examination revealed inflammation of the small bones in his foot therefore McGeady will be sidelined for at least two weeks," the Russian club said on their website on Thursday.
The Ireland international picked up the injury in Tuesday's 4-1 World Cup qualifying win over the Faroe Islands.
