Cotton, one of East Carolina's top defensive players, was hurt in the second quarter during a goal-line stand in the Pirates' 28-24 come-from-behind win Saturday.
The senior started 23 games over the past two seasons and all three games this year for the 15th-ranked Pirates, who travel to in-state rival North Carolina State on Saturday.
East Carolina will likely also be without left tackle Stanley Bryant, who is out indefinitely after suffering a knee injury. Bryant started all three games this season.
