Brisbane Lions key forward Dan McStay will miss 3-4 weeks after scans confirmed some lateral ligament damage in his left ankle.
The 26-year-old sustained the injury in the first term of Saturday’s triumph over the West Coast Eagles.
The injury comes off the back of a stellar start to the 2022 season for the key forward.
Brisbane Lions High Performance Manager, Damian Austin said scans on Monday confirmed the damage.
“We had a scan, obviously he’s got a bit of ankle damage there which is an ankle sprain, so we’ll give him about 3 weeks.
“We’ll hopefully get him up and moving by the end of the week.”
Austin also gave an update on Joe Daniher’s progress as he comes back from a shoulder injury sustained in Round 7.
“Joe’s going well, we’ve got him running and have upped his running loads and he’s just spending time in the gym rehabbing that shoulder.”
