There were a number of injuries on Saturday to key players on teams that are vying for finals, and for some, their 2018 campaign is over.

Demons veteran Bernie Vince has been ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering a season-ending ending shoulder injury in the VFL yesterday.

Giants defender Heath Shaw will miss the next six weeks after injuring his PCL joint against the Crows last night, looming likely that he will also miss the rest of the season.

GWS star midfielder Josh Kelly suffered a nasty concussion in a crunching tackle from Crows skipper Taylor Walker and is in doubt to miss next week’s clash with the Swans.

Port Adelaide forward Charlie Dixon suffered a nasty broken ankle against the Eagles, sidelining the big man for the rest of 2018.

Power ruckman Paddy Ryder suffered a recurrence of a hip injury, meaning he will be sent for scans to determine the severity of the injury, but is likely to miss a few weeks.
