Collingwood midfielder Adam Treloar could miss the rest of the season after reports have emerged that the star onballer’s hamstring injury is more severe than just “cramps”.
The 25-year old told friends that he tore his left hamstring off the bone and also did damage to his right hamstring, according to a report by Jon Ralph via the Herald Sun.
The ex-Giant will seek specialist advice on Tuesday, but Collingwood have reportedly confirmed that he may have torn a tendon.
Treloar will visit specialist tomorrow … certainly a different hammy injury, looks like best case 4 weeks … there is some hope he will avoid surgery, but club will know more post specialist .. either way, a big blow.

A tendon tear would require surgery, which could put Treloar out for over two months, effectively ending his season unless the Pies make a deep September run.
The gun Magpie sustained the injury during the fourth quarter of his side’s 20-point win over the Blues when Treloar pulled up awkwardly after being chased by Carlton youngster Lochie O’Brien.
“He’s done his hammy.”
With the assistance of trainers, Adam Treloar headed to the bench after this.

“I got a scan just before on the hammies and (I’ll) get a couple more opinions from a few people,” Treloar told AFL Media on Monday.
“It just felt like a cramp, that’s why we’re trying to suss out what’s going on. I’ve never done a soft tissue or anything so I don’t really know what’s happened.
“(I feel) a bit sore obviously, it feels OK (today). I can’t really compare it to anything else because I’ve never (done a hamstring). I’ll find out in the next 24 hours I guess.”
It deals a massive blow to Collingwood’s top four chances, who travel to the Gold Coast to play the Suns this Saturday night.
