The Scotland international picked up the knee injury during Liverpool’s away defeat to QPR last month, following a hefty challenge by Loftus Road defender Armand Traore.
If the club are correct in their assessment of the player, it means the 26-year-old will miss Liverpool’s three remaining league games as well as their FA Cup final against Chelsea on May 5.
The Anfield club believed at one point that Adam would make it back for the FA Cup Final, but following medical reports confirming the player had pulled ligaments in his knee, they will now be looking to the likes of either Jonjo Shelvy or Jay Spearing to fill the void left by the former Blackpool man.
Furthermore, Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish confirmed with Sky Sports that there was no need for an operation on the injured knee, and also confirmed that the Scotland player would be allowed to be considered for the Great Britain football team at this summer’s Olympics.
“There is no operation needed but he won’t play this season,” said Dalglish.
“And I would think if they had any designs on having him in the Olympics he wouldn’t be fit for that either.”
Adam has endured a somewhat frustrating debut season at the Anfield club, finding it difficult to make the grade at one of the Premier League’s most established clubs.
The midfielder has netted just twice in 28 appearances for the Reds this season.
