Dougal Howard is facing a month on the sidelines after injuring his hamstring in Saturday night’s win against Gold Coast.

Howard was subbed out of the game in the first quarter after pulling up sore.

“It’s disappointing for Dougal, who has already dealt with some hamstring setbacks this year,” EGM Football David Misson said.

“We’re hopeful that with the bye, he should be back in action for the majority of the second half of the season.”

Liam Stocker is progressing well as he recovers from a persistent abdominal strain, while Isaac Keeler and Jack Hayes continue to hit positive steps in their respective knee recoveries.
