Things just go from bad to worse for the Brisbane Lions. The team has managed to only pick up one win for the year and have now lost their star recruit to injury.
After leaving the ground early in Brisbane’s clash with North Melbourne on Sunday, scans have revealed forward Charlie Cameron tore the Lisfranc ligament on his right ankle and will require surgery.
“In consultation with our medical team, unfortunately Charlie has ruptured the Lisfranc ligament in his foot,” Lions’ General Manager of Football David Noble told lions.com.au.
“He will require surgery and will be out for the rest of the season.”
The former Adelaide Crow will have surgery next week.
Cameron isn’t the only one wearing a Lions jersey to have suffered an injury over the weekend.
Allen Christensen left the field with a concussion after copping a high hit from North’s Jy Simpkin, a hit which the tribunal say warrants a two week suspension. Simpkin will challenge it tonight.
Christensen is not yet 100% clerared to play next week. Hugh McCluggage also sat out the second half of the North Melbourne game due to calf complaints, a test for this weekend’s clash against Essendon.
Mitch Robinson also suffered an injury in the game and will miss three weeks. Robinson broke his toe on his right foot.
