Carlton have suffered an injury blow, with the Blues’ second pick and No.10 pick overall in the 2015 National Draft, Harry McKay, ruled out for three months due to a stress fracture in his back.

McKay experienced soreness in his lower back during training on Saturday, with scans on Monday confirming the stress fractures.

The 18-year-old key position prospect will not require surgery.
