The 23-year-old Reds midfielder received a straight red in injury time for a high challenge in a 3-2 victory over Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday.
I think Lucas will be the better option because of the experience
It means the England international will miss trips to Norwich City and Crystal Palace, as well as a crunch clash against Chelsea at Anfield.
And former Chelsea striker Cascarino feels Rodgers will opt for Lucas Leiva ahead of Joe Allen due to the Brazilian’s experience.
Cascarino said: “They’ve got Lucas or Allen. It’s one or the other. Does he want to go with a more experienced guy in Lucas or a guy that has come to the club and been in and out of the team?
“It’s a tough call for him and he has to get it right.”
The ex-Blues man continued: “Personally, I think Lucas will be the better option because of his experience.
“Because they go away to Norwich and keeping that midfield a bit more compact. I’m not sure Allen is ready to go into that environment in the last few games.”
Former Arsenal striker Alan Smith added: “I think Allen has done well when he has come into the side. I don’t think Rodgers would hesitate at all.
“It’s horses for courses. Depends on the opposition. You wonder who he will play when Chelsea come to town.”
