Melbourne defender Adam Tomlinson needed to be assisted off the ground by trainers early in the clash against North Melbourne.
The defender injured his knee in a marking contest and immediately called for trainers.
He was unable to put pressure on his leg and was taken into the change rooms.
Fingers crossed for Adam Tomlinson as he leaves the ground injured. 🤞
Medical sub = Nathan Jones.

The Demons activated medical-sub Nathan Jones to replace Tomlinson for the rest of the game.
Tomlinson returned to the bench in tears late in the first quarter.
