The midfielder is in doubt for Geelong’s clash with Carlton after being sighted on crutches on Tuesday.
Geelong Cats midfielder Steven Johnson is in doubt for his side’s clash with Carlton on Friday night after suffering from soreness in his right foot.
The 31-year-old was sighted on crutches at Simonds Stadium on Tuesday morning and headed off to have scans shortly after.
Geelong physio Mark Young told the club’s website the injury stemmed from the Cats nail-biting win over Fremantle on Saturday.
“Stevie came off the track today with a bit of foot soreness from the game (against Fremantle),” Young said.
“We’re going to send him for some scans and then pending those results we’ll make a scan later in the week.”
The midfielder has been in the spotlight in recent weeks.
Johnson was cited by the AFL Match Review Panel for kneeing North Melbourne’s Scott Thompson after Geelong’s win over the Kangaroos in round 19, and was offered a one-week ban, but he successfully appealed in the tribunal and was free to play against the Dockers.
He drew attention to himself again on the weekend after appearing to nudge Fremantle’s Lachie Neale in the back of the head with his boot, however the MRP cleared him of any wrongdoing.
