Brazil manager Tite says he is considering changes for Tuesday's game against Australia after blasting his side's poor finishing in the loss to Argentina in Melbourne.
Jesus had reassured fans of his condition after the game, tweeting "I am fine", but he will still need to undergo surgery as he bids to be fit for the beginning of the 2017-18 season.
Brazil of course have already qualified for the 2018 World Cup, while Argentina sit in a precarious 5th place in the group.
Australia will also be without left wing-back Brad Smith, who has also been ruled out of this month's Confederations Cup in Russian Federation after suffering a hamstring strain against the Saudis.
"He had an injury, had a problem on his face, so he just went to hospital and we are waiting to see what happened to him", Tite told reporters.
Sevilla's Gabriel Mercado scored the victor at the MCG and, here, we look at five things we learned from the game and what is next for the nations.
Jesus was carried off the pitch on a stretcher after being accidentally struck in the head by the elbow of his Manchester City teammate Nicolas Otamendi.
Despite defeat against Argentina they played with confidence and verve and it seems Tite has brought Brazil's swagger back.
