Neymar, who only returned from an ankle injury last month, has since opened up about his latest injury on Instagram.
"I'm very sad, the pain is immense," Neymar wrote.
"Once again I will have to stop doing what I love most in life for a while, which is playing football. Sometimes I feel uncomfortable because of the way I play, I dribble and I end up getting fouled constantly.
"I don't know if it's me or what I do on the pitch that is the problem. It really saddens me.
"It makes me sad to hear a player, a coach, a commentator or whoever say "you really have to hit him", "he's a diver", "he's a cry baby", "he's a child", "he's spoiled", etc.
"It really makes me sad and I don't how much more of it I can stand. I just want to be happy playing football and nothing more."
It was a dangerous challenge from defender Steeve Yago that put him out of action in PSG's 1-0 win over Caen on Wednesday night.
It left his manager, Mauricio Pochettino, bemoaning the "lack of protection" given to the Brazilian.
When asked about the incident during his post-match press conference, the Argentine said: "I don't want to take it out on the way the opponent played and the way [Neymar] played his game.
"But I just have the feeling that sometimes there is a lack of protection during matches from refereeing. But it's just a feeling."
PSG press release: Neymar out for 4 weeks.
17/18: Misses Last 16 2nd leg v Real Madrid (metatarsal injury)
18/19: Misses Last 16 tie v Man United (metatarsal)
19/20: Played every minute in the knockout rounds
20/21: Missed Last 16 tie v Barcelona
Far too many injuries... https://t.co/nPGMq8D98z
