Beams to miss up to a month

Brisbane Captain Dayne Beams has avoided surgery and is expected to be sidelined for three to four weeks after scans revealed he has a sprained AC Joint. 

The 27-year-old sustained the injury in the opening minutes of Saturday’s match against the GWS Giants after a fair hit from Shane Mumford.

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 on Saturday afternoon.

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