Judd ruptured his ACL during the Blues’ nine-point loss to the Adelaide Crows on Saturday and will make a call on his playing future in a press conference on Tuesday, the Herald Sun reports.
It will bring to a close an impressive career, with Judd widely regarded as one of the best players of his generation.
A former number three draft pick, Judd has battled a number of serious injuries in his career, however it seems a ruptured ACL will end his 278-game career.
Judd joined Carlton from West Coast in 2008 and won the club best and fairest in 2008, 2009 and 2010.
He won the Brownlow Medal for the first time with the Eagles in 2004, before claiming it a second time in 2010 with Carlton.
Judd was awarded the Norm Smith Medal in the Eagles’ losing grand final in 2005, but went on to become a premiership player in 2006.
