Eduardo Simone, Bristol's Argentinan centre has damaged cruciate ligaments in his knee and will be out of action for six weeks.
Simone sustained the injury during the European Shield match against Dax in France last weekend.
He told Scrum: "I 'm realy sad, I only play three games for my new club before that. And now I will wait until the new year to come back".
