The Serbia left-back was injured in the warm-up prior to Sunday’s derby victory over Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium.
And he will now likely miss out on the Champions League games with CSKA Moscow and Bayern Munich as well as the Premier League encounters with QPR, Swansea and Southampton.
Boss Manyel Pellegrini said: “Kolarov has an important muscle injury in his calf so he will be at least one month.
“Well, I am not a doctor, but I suppose that.”
City will have centre-back Eliaquim Mangala available for the clash with CSKA, but influential midfielder Frank Lampard is unavailable.
Lampard had been hoping to make it back in time for meeting with the Russians on Tuesday, but it has come too soon and this weekend’s clash with QPR is now more likely.
