A scan has shown the injury is worse than first thought, though, and he now faces a period on the sidelines.
A statement on the Belgian FA's website read: "Fellaini suffered a small tear at the juncture of muscle and tendon in the knee. The injury was revealed during a scan.
"Fellaini was injured last Saturday during the match between his club Everton and Wigan Athletic. He will be out three weeks.
"It has been agreed with his club Everton FC he will rehabilitate in Belgium during this period."
