The 23-year-old will, therefore, be unavailable for England's Euro 2012 qualifier against Montenegro on October 12.
Manager Gerard Houllier confirmed the news on Friday ahead of Villa's Premier League clash at Tottenham on Saturday.
Dunne is available for the Barclays Premier League clash at Tottenham after missing the previous two games with a knee problem. But Collins and Cuellar formed a solid partnership in last Sunday's 2-1 win at Wolves.
Dunne said: "I wouldn't have any complaints if I was on the bench on Saturday. If they had been beaten 5-0 then I might be disappointed, but they were brilliant.
"That's the way football is and that is what having the squad is all about. Players come in and take their chance and it's up to everyone to work hard to try and get back in.
"Carlos is brilliant. I played a lot of games with him at centre-back last season and we had a good understanding. Wherever he plays, particularly at centre-half, he is one of the better players on the pitch."
