Barritt missed the end of the Premiership season with an ankle problem and he was rested for England’s summer tour to Argentina – but he was called up to the British & Irish Lions touring party as injury cover.
“Brad is a tremendously important player for us and England. He is on the road to recovery and we look forward to his return later this season,” said McCall.
“He will be missed through the autumn, although we have talented players ready to step forward.
"We're not exactly sure of the time frame. It's really unfortunate for Brad because he's been outstanding for us over the last four seasons.
“We'll miss him for the next three months or so, but Brad hasn't had much of a break from rugby for four and a half years.
"Getting him back in January will be a real bonus for us and he'll have a lot to look forward to from that moment on. We're not exactly sure when the injury happened.
“He injured that foot against Toulon last season and it's come back again. It's unfortunate, it's one of those things."
