Brisbane midfielder Mitch Robinson’s 2017 season could be over, with the club weighing up whether to send him for season ending footy surgery.
Robsinson played the opening seven games of the season, averaging 20 disposals, before injuring his foot in round seven against Sydney.
He was initially expected to miss around 10 weeks, however, it has now been revealed he may not return at all, with the 27-year-old possibly needing surgery to repair the fracture in his foot which will rule him out for the remainder of the year.
Robinson will have scans next week to determine the best course of action.
“The plan was always to leave him in the (moon) boot and reassess after a three to four week period, so there’s been no setback there,” Lions football manager David Noble told News Limited.
“If it has not got any worse, if the fracture has started to heal he might be available for the last four or five weeks, then you have to weigh up, if it looks like it will just be one or two (games) I’m not sure that’s valuable.
“He’ll have another scan next week and we’ll know more then; that will tell us if there has been some healing.”
Brisbane currently sit on the bottom of the ladder, with one win from the openign 10 rounds.
