He will return to training in the coming days.
The Highlanders utility has plenty of experience in the outside backs, but started at centre against Scotland last weekend, and there is a view that the silky back could be a potential heir for the All Blacks midfield.
The news is not so positive for Tamati Ellison, whose injured foot ligaments are still causing him issues.
The All Blacks will make a decision on whether or not to fly in a replacement for the Highlanders back, who started at second five-eighth against Scotland in the first Test.
