Collingwood defender Levi Greenwood will miss the remainder of the 2019 campaign after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the second quarter of the Qualifying Final against Geelong on Friday night.

A scan this morning confirmed the injury, which occurred moments before half-time. The 30 year-old was playing his 17th match for the season.

An assessment this morning also confirmed that his team-mate, Jordan De Goey, suffered a hamstring strain in the opening term of the match.

The final against the Cats was De Goey’s first match since suffering a hamstring injury in the same leg, his right, against Richmond in round 19.

Collingwood GM of Football, Geoff Walsh, said De Goey could yet play a part in the season.

“The scan revealed a strain but how quickly he recovers remains to be seen. We have to keep winning, obviously, but there is still hope that Jordy can re-appear in 2019,” Walsh said.

“Unfortunately, Levi won’t be able to share in what is to come. At least on-field.

"His team-mates and the staff got around him last night and today, once the news came through, and typically his chin is up.

"He is determined to contribute in whatever ways he can from here, which is one reason why he is such a popular team-mate and member of the program.”
