Arsenal has yet to confirm the entity of the injury and hope for positive news in the next 24 hours.
Unai Emery fears Holding holds a long period on the sidelines. He said Thursday: "The first news is not good".
Midfielder Aaron Ramsey (ankle) will be monitored before Saturday's Premier League clash with Huddersfield, which Mesut Ozil should lose with a back problem.
Emery added: "She has had back pain and is now working with a physiotherapist and we will look when she can come with us.

Players not involved in Old Trafford trained on Thursday morning and Laurent Koscielny could join the team of the day, having played twice for Arsenal's Under-23s both on Saturday and next week against Qarabag in Europe League.
Emery said: "The 18th may be for Saturday and we are also doing a plan with him, maybe he can play against Qarabag.
"Work with us every day to train and play in the Under 23 with a good feeling.The next step, I think, is with us."
