Nic Naitanui is set for more time of the sidelines after scans on his ankle injured in Friday night's loss to Collingwood.
Naitanui pulled up sore after the game and is believed to need several weeks rest.
General Manager of Football Craig Vozzo confirmed the news on Monday afternoon.
“It is an ankle syndesmosis injury, but we are waiting on a medical report to shed more light on the precise nature of the problem and the way forward,” Vozzo said.
“We expect he will miss an extended period, but cannot put a time frame on that until we have more information.”
