Hawthorn forward Paul Puopolo injured his hamstring late in the fourth quarter against Melbourne and was forced to limp off the field.

He joined Cyril Rioli on the sidelines, who corked his knee in the second quarter and has not not returned.

The Hawks medical team will be busy next week as we await the full prognosis on their injuries, but both players are likely to miss multiple weeks.
