Magpies’ football manager Neil Balme confirmed the news on Collingwood’s website this afternoon.
Meanwhile, captain Scott Pendlebury will face a fitness test later in the week after injuring his ankle against Richmond.
“We had a scan straight away and fortunately there was no cracks, no fractures, no great problem,” Balme said.
“He’s a little bit sore, but he’s a reasonable chance of getting up for this week.”
Darcy Moore is also a chance to play against the Bulldogs on Friday night, with the forward “running pretty well”, as he recovers from a hamstring injury.
