Meriem was substituted at half-time in the previous match against Troyes, and replaced by Dutchman Luigi Bruins, who went on to score his first goal in the division.
Manager Claude Puel has also said that he is still awating the return of midfielder Kevin Anin.
"I think he is back in Nice, and he'll take up training again this week after this rest period," Puel said.
"With Kevin it's not a case of just treatment, I want him to be feeling good."
