Update: Elliott and Moore's injuries

Buckley reflects on loss to Cats Watch coach Nathan Buckley address the media after Sunday's 21-point loss to Geelong at the MCG.

Scans on Monday have confirmed that Collingwood forwards Jamie Elliott and Darcy Moore suffered minor hamstring strains in matches played on Sunday.

Elliott, returning in the VFL after recovering from a hamstring injury in mid-April, came from the ground in the second quarter of the match against Geelong at the Holden Centre.

Hours later, at the MCG, Moore came from the field in the second term of the AFL match against Geelong. The match was Moore’s first since injuring a hamstring against Greater Western Sydney in round two.

Collingwood’s General Manager of Football, Geoff Walsh, confirmed that both strains were suffered in similar regions of the hamstring as previously experienced.

The club confirmed on Sunday night it will be reviewing its recent soft tissue history.

“As disappointing as it is for Darcy and Jamie to miss more football, the fresh injuries are not tears but relatively minor strains,” Walsh said.

“Further assessments will be made in the coming days and it will be after those assessments and examinations are completed that their recovery programs will be mapped out.”

A full injury update will be online at on Wednesday afternoon.
