Bucks goes On The Couch Straight after a huge day at the MCG, Nathan Buckley Gerard Healy, Jonathon Brown, Garry Lyon and Paul Roos on Fox Footy's 'On the Couch'.

Collingwood midfielder Daniel Wells will have surgery this week for a foot injury he suffered in the second quarter of Monday’s match against Melbourne at the MCG.

Wells played out the match but scans today revealed high-grade damage to the Lisfranc ligament in his left foot and related bone separation.

Collingwood’s General Manager of Football, Geoff Walsh, said surgery was the only option for the silky veteran.

“Unfortunately for Daniel, an operation is required. We’ll know what that means, in terms of the rest of this season, after the surgery but it is reasonable to expect that it is a long term injury.

“Clearly, it’s a bitter pill for Daniel to swallow. He had spent a lot of time getting into strong physical shape and, back in the team, he was working his way into the season.”

The match against the Demons was Wells’ fourth in 2018 and 14th for Collingwood. He has played a total of 257 matches across a 16 year AFL career with North Melbourne and the Magpies.

Wells is one of only four players from the 2002 National Draft still in the AFL; the others being Brendon Goddard, Jarrad McVeigh and Kade Simpson.
