The talented forward was forced off in the defeat to Cardiff City last week with a knee issue, and he was sent to two specialists to determine the extent of the problem.
And, the club confirmed on their official site that they were given bad news, as Campbell is not expected to play again in the current campaign.
The 20-year-old is the Potters top scorer this season, weighing in with six goals in the league and he has also provided five assists.
As well as the outstanding contribution in the final third, he is a constant menace to the opposition with his pace in behind.
So, it’s fair to say that the fans were understandably unhappy at the news that was shared, and here we look at some of their responses from Twitter…
Is this some sort of sick joke.. that looks like play off push finished. We are a complete different team with out @TyreseKCampbell .. wishing you a speedy recovery! Come back stronger!
