Collingwood swingman Ben Reid will miss the early rounds of the soon to resume AFL season.
The 2010 premiership player suffered a calf injury at training today.
“Ben was jogging when he felt his calf go. We had been easing him back as a precaution due to the intense, short block of training the players have before round two. We’ll know more about the severity of the injury in coming days but at this stage it looks like it is significant,” Collingwood GM of Football, Geoff Walsh, said.
“Certainly, with a re-start to the season on the doorstep, he is going to miss some matches.”
