The Western Bulldogs could be without midfielder Adam Treloar for a “number of weeks”, according to senior coach Luke Beveridge.
Treloar sustained an ankle injury late in the second quarter of the Bulldogs’ 111-point win over St Kilda at Marvel Stadium on Saturday night.
He was subbed out of the game at half-time, and wearing a moon-boot post-match.
“He’s got an ankle injury as you saw – I spoke to our medicos, and they’ll need to assess it but he’ll be out for a little while,” Beveridge told media following the game.
“The boys are talking about it, and they think it’s a low-grade syndesmosis injury. That means you’re usually out for a number of weeks - I'm not sure how many."
Treloar will have scans in the coming days to determine the extent of the injury.
Utility Anthony Scott was also ruled out of the match late in the third quarter after suffering a head knock.
“He just had a bit of blurred vision, Scotty,” Beveridge said.
“The way the game was going, we thought we’d be a bit conservative with him. We think he’ll be fine.”
