during the round nine AFL match between the Melbourne Demons and the Brisbane Lions at Melbourne Cricket Ground on May 22, 2016 in Melbourne, Australia.

Allen Christensen is set to miss eight weeks of football after breaking his right collarbone in the Lions’ loss to Carlton at Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

Lions Medical Staff initially thought the injury would keep the 25-year-old out for a month, but scans revealed the break was worse than first thought.

Christensen was injured late in the second quarter when he was collected by a bump from the Blues’ Andrew Walker. He left the field, aided by Clubphysios and did not take any further part in the game.
