Dougal Howard will miss his first game in St Kilda colours following a left hamstring strain sustained in Friday’s match against Carlton.

The co-vice-captain was subbed out of the game at half-time, with the injury set to rule him out for this week.

Howard will be joined on the sidelines by Hunter Clark, who will observe the AFL’s mandatory 12-day concussion layoff after a clash of heads late in Friday's contest.

Half-back Jack Sinclair (hamstring) and wingman Daniel McKenzie (concussion) will undergo tests during the week, while Dan Hannebery will spend at least another week in the VFL after a strong nine-clearance display on Saturday.

Shaun McKernan also ran out for the Zebras after overcoming a toe issue.
