Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley has provided an injury update on luckless defender Darcy Moore.

The 23-year old went down in the first quarter of his side’s win over West Coast on Friday night with a left hamstring problem and did not return.

And while Moore has endured a torrid run of injuries recently, Buckley speculated that his latest setback was only minor.

“We think it’s a slight hamstring strain,” Buckley told reporters post-match.

“As every player would understand, that will take a bit of time. But he’s put a solid block of footy together and we think he’ll get back in good time.

“It wasn’t a big whack. I’m not a doctor, but it won’t be a high-grade strain. But it will be something that he’ll have to recover from.”

Moore has just missed two games this season.

He played just seven matches in 2018 after missed the Grand Final after dealing with persistent hamstring and soft tissue injuries.
