Kangaroos coach Rhyce Shaw could not confirm the severity of Higgins’ injury after his side’s 27-point win.
“It doesn’t look good, but we’ll have to assess that Monday when we get a scan,” he told reports.
“Higgo is so important to us, not only with his football ability but his leadership.”
Higgins averaging 28.6 disposals, 4.1 clearances and 4.5 inside 50s per game this season.
The Roos will be searching for their fourth-straight win in next Sunday’s clash with GWS at Blundstone Arena.
