The Spanish defender has been restricted to just four Ligue 1 games for the French giants since his free transfer from Real Madrid in the summer due to injuries.
The veteran centre-back has now suffered a ‘low-grade’ injury to his right calf in Thursday’s training and will undergo tests next week.
Sergio Ramos will reportedly miss the first leg of PSG’s tie against Real Madrid next month
Ramos has only played four Ligue 1 games since arriving in Paris in the summer due to injury
But MARCA report the new problem to the soleus muscle will rule him out for at least a fortnight, and therefore the last-16 clash against LaLiga leaders Real at the Parc des Princes on February 15.
A PSG statement released on Sunday said: ‘Sergio Ramos must take a rest period due to a low-grade muscle injury in his right calf that occurred in training on Thursday.’
The Spanish outlet also states the soleus issue is what gave Ramos so many issues during his final six months at the Santiago Bernabeu, missing 24 games for Real between January and May 2021.
This would be the third injury Ramos – who played 671 matches for Madrid over a 15-year spell – has sustained at PSG since joining Mauricio Pochettino’s men in the summer.

A calf problem prevented him from featuring at all in the first 14 league games of the season, before playing the full 90 minutes against Saint-Etienne in late November.
But the club confirmed in early December that he was nursing a new muscle injury which ruled him out of three more Ligue 1 games prior to a return against Lorient just before Christmas.
But it was an ill-fated comeback for the Spain international, who was sent off for two bookable offences 40 minutes after being introduced.
He played and scored his first PSG goal against Reims before the mini break, but will now miss Monday night’s French Cup last-16 clash against Nice after being left out of the squad.
Ramos brought a trophy-laden spell at Real Madrid to an end last year by leaving on a free
Ramos has only played five games for PSG, and has completed the full 90 minutes in just two of them.
There has been better news on the injury front this week though for the Parisians, with Pochettino confirming Lionel Messi will start against Nice after contracting coronavirus during the winter break.
Neymar and Georginio Wijnaldum are also on the mend following ankle trouble, with the Brazilian back running and due for more tests – while his Dutch team-mate is due to rejoin his team-mates for regular training imminently.
