Tom Stewart has suffered a suspected broken collarbone in Geelong’s clash against Melbourne.

Stewart hurt his shoulder following an off-the-ball bump from Dees forward Tom McDonald and went straight to the bench for assessment.

He will not take further part in the game and could be the second player this round to suffer a broken collarbone following Western Bulldog’s forward Sam Lloyd, who broke his collarbone in the Bulldogs clash against Sydney on Thursday night.
