Richmond’s Ben Griffiths has been ruled out of the final round of the season due to a groin injury.

Griffiths has been battling the injury for the past month, missing three of the last four games.

The club has opted to officially pull the pin on the big man’s 2016 campaign with one game to remaining.

Fellow forward Ty Vickery looms as a possible replacement, after kicking two goals in the VFL on the weekend.
