A recurrence of the injury forced the 34-year-old out of the current series against Bangladesh and also the opening match against India in Rajkot, starting on November 9. His availability for the remaining four Tests in India, the world's top-ranked side, will be left to medical staff.
England have named an unchanged squad for their tour of India with their all-time leading wicket-taker James Anderson not included in the initial 16-man list for the five-Test series, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said on Tuesday.
Anderson, with 463 wickets in 119 matches, is recovering from a shoulder injury and has been left out of the squad for the opening Test in Rajkot starting on November 9 and is doubtful for the second Test in Visakhapatnam.
However, the England and Wales Cricket Board said in a statement that "it is hoped he will still play some part in the series" in India.

That means Jake Ball remains with the squad, which is unchanged from the two-Test series in Bangladesh, after he was added to the party. England won the first Test by 22 runs on Monday, with the second match beginning in Dhaka on Friday.
Squad: Alastair Cook (captain), Moeen Ali, Zafar Ansari, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Jake Ball, Gary Ballance, Gareth Batty, Stuart Broad, Jos Buttler (wk), Ben Duckett, Steven Finn, Haseeb Hameed, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes.
