The 25-year-old was reportedly hurting following Saturday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes and attempted to play on Sunday against the Montreal Canadiens, but he could only last the first period.
The injury comes at a bad time for the Panthers, who currently hold a three-point lead over the Washington Capitals, and a four-point lead over the Winnipeg Jets in the race for the Southeast Division lead.
In 59 games this season, Versteeg has recorded 22 goals and 27 assists for 49 points.
