ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
"It's not too bad so we hope it will only be around four to six weeks," director of rugby Richard Cockerill told BBC Radio Leicester.
Parling only return to action with the Tigers at the start of October after nine months out with another knee injury, but Cockerill was keen to dismiss any link between the two problems.
"Thankfully, it has nothing to do with his old injury," he added.
"It's just unfortunate and purely bad luck. We seem to be having that a little bit too often at the moment but Geoff will be fine and he will hopefully be fit within the next six weeks."
The Tigers currently top Pool 4 after two rounds of action but Parling will miss back-to-back games against ASM Clermont Auvergne in Rounds 3 and 4.
