Luckless Carlton ruckman Matthew Kruezer will be in a moonboot for up to six weeks after suffering an injury during an intra-club game last Thursday.
Kruezer has been ruled out of the opening few round of the 2015 season after suffering a hairline fracture to his fifth metatarsal, say the Blues.
The 25-year-old played only one game in 2014 due to fractures in his right foot.
Carlton concede that the injury may keep Kruezer out for longer than six weeks given his long injury history.
“It will just depend on how long it takes for that bone to heal,” McKay is quoted as saying on Carlton’s website.
“Best case scenario will be four weeks, and we wouldn’t scan it until after four weeks. We’re hoping worst-case scenario will be six (weeks).
“It’s not in the same spot that his previous fracture was. It’s along the bone a little bit and it’s a very stable fracture.
“It’s in a different spot, so whether they’re connected or not I’m not exactly sure … you would expect there’s some connection there.
“(He’s) very frustrated and very disappointed as you can imagine.”
