“We expect Suckling to miss at least a month. The knee is fine but the ankle isn’t so good,” he said on Tuesday afternoon.
“Matty obviously came off during the game, we’ve had scans since and he has got a low-grade injury to his medial ligament of his knee.
“He also has a high ankle sprain, so that’s going to take a little bit longer in terms of return, so we’re expecting a minimum of four weeks.”
Meanwhile, Caleb Daniel will miss this week’s clash with North Melbourne, but could play in Round 7 against Adelaide.
“Caleb had some calf tightness on our training run on Thursday, we’ve scanned him since and he has a minor calf injury that we’re managing.
“He won’t be available this weekend but we’re giving him every chance to be available for selection next week.”
