Rodgers made this known on Wednesday during his pre-match press conference.
Ndidi’s last outing for Leicester was in the League Cup second-leg semi-final 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa on January 28.
He returned to action after recovering from a knee injury but was dropped a few minutes to the game against Chelsea after he felt a pain in his knee during warm-up.
He had earlier undergone an operation and made a remarkable recovery.
But speaking ahead of Friday’s game, Rodgers said: “Wes (Morgan) is back in the squad. He’s come through that.
“Ndidi is going to be doubtful for this game. He came back very quickly. He had a little reaction to his operation. We’ll see how he is.
“(Nampalys) Mendy is still out.”
On the possibility of Leicester, currently third on the log, qualifying for next season’s UEFA Champions League, Rodgers added: “We go into every game and give it our best. We know what we want to achieve.
“The players have been brilliant. In the last numbers of games, we’ve made some mistakes. There’s lots of learning that they will continue to make. It’s a very competitive league.”
