Brisbane captain Dayne Zorko has suffered a suspected calf strain and will sit out the rest of the game against Adelaide.

Zorko strained his calf in the second quarter and Lions coach Chris Fagan confirmed to Fox Footy that Zorko will not return to the field for the remainder of the game.

The news is no better for Adelaide, as Rory Sloane hurt his ankle and went straight down into the rooms for assessment, but Adelaide coach Matthew Nicks confirmed he will play the rest of the game.
