“Because of the nature of the injury, it’s difficult to say exactly when he’ll be back but we’ll rehabilitate him as quickly as possible without risking any further damage,” Port Adelaide high performance manager Darren Burgess said.

“This is a new injury, a trauma injury, and fortunately has nothing to do with the ankle problems Charlie’s had in the past.”

The injury-prone Dixon has played 16 games this year, his equal most for a single season in his career.
