Jeunechamp has been ruled out of the remainder of the Ligue 1 campaign after damaging ligaments against Lens last month.
The defensive midfielder underwent an operation on Tuesday to repair the problem but will need several months' rehabilitation.
He will not return to action this term and his absence will be a major blow to Rennes, who are already at the lower end of the table.
Jeunechamp has been an influential figure for Rennes since his move from Bastia in 2002 and the 29-year-old will hope to be capable of returning at the same level.
