Given touch and go for Bosnia friendly with Republic of Ireland
Given was sent for tests after picking up the problem in training on Monday.
The Villa shot-stopper is now only expected to sit out two to three days of this week's preparations in Malahide.
A spokesman for the Football Association of Ireland said: "Shay picked up a minor knee injury in training.
"After undergoing a scan, it was concluded that Shay should sit out training for the next few days for precautionary measures."
The Republic face Bosnia in a friendly at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday afternoon before heading off for their pre-Euro 2012 training camp in Italy the following day.
