Fremantle's Andrew Brayshaw has undergone surgery overnight after an off-the-ball strike from Eagle Andrew Gaff.

The 18-year-old suffered a broken jaw and three displaced lower teeth after he was punched by Gaff in yesterday's Western Derby at Optus Stadium.

"Club medical staff have advised that the surgery went well and Brayshaw is now recovering at home with his parents," read a statement from the club.

"He can not eat solid food for four weeks and will not play again this season."

Gaff is expected to be referred straight to the AFL tribunal.
