Adelaide midfielder David Mackay will be sidelined for up to a month with a hamstring injury.
Mackay injured his hamstring during Adelaide’s 15-point loss to the Bulldogs on Saturday night.
“David experienced hamstring soreness in the second half of Saturday night’s match and sat out the last quarter,” General manager of high performance Brett Burton said.
“Unfortunately, further assessment has revealed a hamstring strain that will keep him sidelined for 3–4 weeks.”
Adelaide host Geelong this Friday night, in what will be Patrick Dangerfield’s first match against his old side since joining Geelong in last year’s trade period.
