Adelaide defender Jordon Butts suffered a concussion after a heavy collision with North Melbourne's Callum Coleman-Jones at the Adelaide Oval on Saturday afternoon, while Roos veteran Jack Ziebell suffered a leg ailment late in the contest.
Butts, who was substituted out of the game following the incident, collided with Coleman-Jones during the first quarter of proceedings, with Butts remaining down on the turf for a decent portion of time, before being assisted from the field by Adelaide's medical staff.
Fingers crossed Jordon Butts is okay after this big bump. 🤕
