The 20-year-old had to come off the field in stoppage time at the end of the first game of his loan spell with Tranmere Rovers on Saturday and has now returned to Finch Farm for treatment on the injury.
Feeney was captain of the Blues' U23 team before he joined Rovers for what was supposed to be the end of the season where he could gain valuable first-team experience as the club continue to groom him for the first-team.
According to a report by the Liverpool Echo, tests are expected to reveal a muscle tear severe enough to sideline him for the remainder of the campaign, dealing a blow not only to the player but also Tranmere who hoped the promising young centre-half could bolster their push for promotion.

His loan to Tranmere as well as Gibson's loan to Fleetwood would have highlighted which of the two could make it in the world of men's football, not the totally inadequate U23s set up.
Another long spell out is very damaging for the lad; he's a terrific leader, and an honest player who deserves better.

Meanwhile, across the park, one of Liverpools most experienced ball boys is showing the first symptoms of a cold and is a major doubt for their next game.

I'm sure he was hugely looking forward to testing himself at league football. I certainly was intrigued to see how both he and Lewis Gibson perform on loan.
This was his opportunity to showcase his claims to be retained, or attract the attention of interested clubs.
The four months league football he would have gained on loan at Tranmere is a critical loss to his development at this stage of his career.
Really gutted for the lad.

Just had a suspected murder locally, the rumours on twitter are that the victims body has been found in the lock up of the chief suspect. On the evening news, police are saying that the body has still not been found, although the chief suspect has been arrested. As I said to my wife - circumstantially it looks like murder, but what if the supposed victim turns up next week hale and hearty?
Can you truly believe anything you read these days?

So watch this space: he might get a full match sooner rather than later. He was on the first-team bench the other week in a cup game.
