The Magpies confirmed the star midfielder’s lengthy layoff in a statement on Monday afternoon in a major blow for the club.
He will meet with a surgeon to determine if surgery is required.
“(Taylor Adams) has a high-level MCL strain and that will keep him out of action for a 10-week timeline,” Collingwood Strength and Conditioning Manager Kevin White told the club’s website.
“It’s really disappointing for Taylor and he’ll meet a surgeon today to assess whether he goes under the knife, but regardless he’ll be looking at around a 10 week return to pay timeline.”
However, according to AFL journalist, Adams’ season is in jeopardy and 10 weeks is a best case scenario.
Taylor Adams season is essentially in jeopardy. Best case now 10 weeks. I spoke to the pies star this morning, see @7NewsMelbourne
