Cam Rayner is likely to miss the remainder of the season after scans on Tuesday confirmed a ruptured ACL.
Rayner sustained the injury in the second quarter of Monday night’s win over the SUNS in the AAMI pre-season competition.
GM of Football Danny Daly said the injury occurred in Rayner’s right knee after an awkward landing.
“It is terrible news for Cam and really disappointing for the team,” Daly said.
“He will see a surgeon in the coming weeks and we will then lay out the next steps from there.
“Our thoughts are with Cam and we will wrap our arms around him and continue to support him as he gets on with his recovery.”
