The 26-year-old has endured a difficult time at the BVB since signing from Wolfsburg at the start of last season. The Germany international missed 20 Bundesliga games last term due to a knee injury.
The former Chelsea man also picked up an Achilles injury later in the campaign and missed the final two months. He is now sidelined with a thigh injury and is expected to be out for a month.
Dortmund get their Bundesliga season underway on Saturday when they travel to Schurrle’s former club Wolfsburg.
