And the Springboks could also be without Johann Muller after the Ulster lock injured his hamstring in training.
"Bryan sustained a Petallar Tendon (knee) injury during last week's match and will not be considered for selection," said team communications manager Andy Colquhoun.
With Bakkies Botha (Achilles) and Victor Matfield (hamstring) also struggling, the defending champions have issues to deal with in the second row.
Botha has been able to run with the team in training, although a return on Saturday could come too soon.
That means flanker Willem Alberts could be deployed as an emergency second row, alongside Danie Rossouw.
