The former Salford City Reds prop sustained the injury in last Friday's heart-breaking 26-20 defeat to league leaders Wigan Warriors at the DW Stadium.
Sidlow has been ruled out of action for three months and head coach Francis Cummins believes losing his services is a massive blow to the team's hopes of a top-eight finish.
"Adam's going to be out for 12 weeks after rupturing his MCL," Cummins told the Bulls' official website. "Any loss to a squad of our size is going to have a massive impact.
"It's a tough blow for us and Adam (Sidlow), who has been in tremendous form since joining us this year.
"You have to remember that he joined us late in the close-season and didn't have much of a pre-season with us, but he's grown in confidence and is growing with our systems at the club.
"There is no doubt that he'll be a big loss to us for the final few months of the season."
