Danty will face further tests over the coming days, with the All Blacks visiting Stade de France on 8 September.
Next week, a training schedule will be “adapted to his situation,” according to the FRF.
Fabien Galthie is likely to replace the La Rochelle center with Bordeaux-Begles’ Yoram Moefana or Montpellier’s Arthur Vincent in the opening match.
Due to a serious knee injury, France have already lost fly-half Romain Ntamack for the entire tournament, and loose-head prop Cyril Baille for at least the first two games.
Uruguay, Namibia, and Italy are also in Pool A, along with the hosts, who are among the favourites to win the World Cup.
