The Swans star will be sidelined with an ankle injury sustained in his team’s four-point win over Port Adelaide on the weekend.
Sydney Swans midfielder Daniel Hannebery will miss up to a month of football with an ankle injury.
The 23-year-old has scans on Monday after the Swans’ four-point win over Port Adelaide on Saturday afternoon which revealed he had damaged ligaments in his right ankle.
Swans coach John Longmire confirmed to the club’s website that the All-Australian would miss up to a month with the injury.
“He’s a got a slight syndesmosis injury in his ankle, which means he’ll probably miss about four weeks,” Longmire told sydneyswans.com.au.
“It could be either side of that though, so it could be a shorter time frame than that, or at worst it could be a little bit longer.
“We’re expecting about four weeks at the present time, but it will take a good week or so before we get a good idea of how it is.”
Whilst the injury would not require surgery, Longmire said Hannebery’s ligaments would need to have fully healed before he could return to the field.
“It doesn’t require an operation; it’s more a time thing,” he said.
“He’ll be non-weight bearing for the next ten days and hopefully it’s okay after that and we’ll have more idea after that.
“We have to wait and see, but at the moment it’s four weeks.”
The Swans are on an eight-match winning streak and will face Richmond on Friday at the MCG.
