Townsend, 23, has made eight appearances this season for the struggling Tykes, who are five points off safety in the Championship.
“It was a duel between two players that resulted in him breaking his finger,” boss Jose Morais said.
“I’m not frustrated,” Morais told BBC Radio Sheffield.
“If I could give a pair of gloves to both of them and say ‘start to fight’ and they have a fair fight and it would result in a better shape for the team and a better atmosphere, then I would say the result is good.”
Barnsley currently sit third from bottom in the Championship, five points adrift of safety.
They face Sheffield United at home in the early kick-off on Saturday.
