Ruckman Sam Hayes's medial meniscus in his right knee will require surgery too.
Players reporting ankle troubles in Willem Drew, who has had some scar tissue cleaned up in his right ankle, and Steven Motlop, who will have surgery on his left ankle, are also set to go under the knife.
A Latarjet stabilisation will also be required for Miles Bergman's right shoulder.

Despite a seemingly long list of injuries, most players will be back in action at the start of the pre-season as Port Adelaide launch another attempt at premiership glory.
The side has narrowly missed out on making the Grand Final in 2020 and 2021, falling in consecutive home preliminary finals.
The club have been left disappointed after ex-Power midfielder and club great Kane Cornes criticised their preliminary final performance against the Bulldogs.
“For a club that sees itself as the most ruthless club in their competition, that their mission is we exist to win championships, can you imagine (former coach) Fos Williams being sensitive to a couple of media comments on the back of what I believe is their second most embarrassing performance in finals history?" Cornes said earlier in the week on Footy Classified.
