Walters, 24, underwent surgery to repair torn cartilage and will begin rehab immediately.
Town are refusing to set a target for Walters' return to the first team but remain hopeful of some involvement before the end of the season.
David Norris, Richard Naylor and Shefki Kuqi are all unlikely to be fit for Saturday's game at Scunthorpe.
