The club's leading scoring limped out of their 3-1 weekend reverse against Roma, not before netting their opener after 12 minutes.
Only this week Empoli's coach Silvio Baldini admitted that he would be lost without Di Natale, but now he will be forced to go on without him.
The hit-man underwent scans on his left knee on Tuesday and will now miss training for ten days before then resting the injury for a further ten.
Di Natale is now certainly out of the club's crunch game against Piacenza on Saturday and is a doubt for the following weekend as well.
