Elliot, who missed all of 2016 due to a back injury, suffered an ankle injury during pre-season, which kept him out of round one.
Coach Nathan Buckley confirmed on Tuesday afternoon Elliot will miss at least another week.
Buckley said Elliott will train this in a bid to return for the side’s round three clash with Sydney.
“He (Elliott) won’t play this week. He’ll train and try and get up for Sydney,” Buckley said.
“Broomy’s form has been really good,” Buckley added.
“He’s always enticed us as selectors because we love what he brings to the table. We know he’s ready.”
