New Zealand's star fly half Dan Carter has been ruled out of the rest of the Rugby Championship due to injury.
Ninety-seven-cap Carter was injured in the sixteenth minute when he was tackle by Springbok hooker Bismarck du Plessis.
In the tackle Carter injured his acromioclavicular joint, or AC joint and was immediately substituted.
Du Plessis was yellow carded for the tackle which referee Romain Poite said was high after referring it to the TMO.
"He's done an AC (joint) and they're usually four to six weeks," coach Steve Hansen said.
It was only Carter's second start in the southern hemisphere championship since returning from a thigh injury.
Beaudan Barrett came on a replacement for Carter and helped to set up Brodie Retalick's try.
The All Blacks have next week off before they face Argentina and they will hope that either Aaron Cruden or Tom Taylor will be able to regain fitness to provide cover for the matches against the Pumas and the Springboks.
The All Blacks won the match 29-15 and have taken a strong lead at the top of the Rugby Championship.
