Injury Update: Beams and Bell

Dayne Beams will have scans this week to determine the extent of a shoulder injury suffered in the Lions’ loss to GWS at the Gabba this evening.

The Lions’ Captain was collected by Giants ruckman Shane Mumford in a fair hip and shoulder and left the ground supporting his arm with his guernsey minutes after the opening bounce.

Senior Coach Chris Fagan said Beams would get scans to determine more, but the club was optimistic.

“There isn't an expectation that he's going to need an operation or anything like that,” Fagan told media following the match.

“He'll probably recover and play some footy.

“I just don't know how long he's going to be out for, whether that's one week or four weeks, we'll know more after the scans.”

Beams’ injured left shoulder is not the same one he had reconstructed during the 2015 season.

In further injury news, Lions midfielder Tom Bell will have surgery to repair a fracture and dislocation to his ankle suffered in the Lions’ NEAFL win against the Giants at South Pine Sports Complex this afternoon.

Bell was stretchered off halfway through the last quarter with the injury and was taken by ambulance to hospital.

It significantly dampened the mood on what was another fantastic performance by Brisbane who cruised to a 22.15. (147) to 7.9.(51) victory.

Bell is expected to have surgery on Thursday, with the Club conceding the 26-year-old is unlikely to play again this season.
