Iheanacho sustained an injury in the first half of Thursday’s matchday-2 fixture against same opponent at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.
The Leicester City forward was replaced by Taiwo Awoniyi after the break.
He is now a major doubt for the reverse fixture billed to hold at the Japoma Stadium, Douala.
“There will be some changes. Already, there are some injuries and I don’t know if Kelechi is able to play because he had a knock,” Rohr told reporters.
